Registration Now Open for the 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting!

We are excited to announce that the Rhode Island Bar Association's 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, June 23rd and 24th. Our incredible program will be presented on the engaging and interactive Eventmobi platform and will feature 17 workshops that will cover a variety of pertinent legal topics. Attendees will be familiar with the viewing format for all our fantastic seminars because Eventmobi integrates with the Zoom videoconferencing platform. One week before the virtual event, you will receive instructions from Eventmobi on how to create your profile, and you’ll also have a chance to explore the platform.
While everyone in attendance will be experiencing our Annual Meeting in this new virtual format, our program includes some of the usual favorites, including the always popular state and federal court updates. Our Thursday morning plenary speakers, the Honorable O. Rogeriee Thompson of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and the Honorable John J. McConnell, Jr., Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island, will draw upon their career experiences to lead a discussion and provoke a meaningful conversation about the practice of law.
Traditionally, we have an Annual Awards Reception on the first day of our Meeting followed by our Annual Luncheon on day two. This year, we have decided that we will combine the events into one in-person event, our Annual Meeting Luncheon, on Friday, June 25th at 12:00 pm at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick in their tented Pavilion. We will hear a brief update on Bar Foundation activities, honor our awards winners from 2020 and 2021, hear RI Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul A. Suttell’s traditional perspective on the state of the Judiciary, and swear-in our incoming president, Lynda L. Laing. We hope you will consider joining us as we will ensure precautions are taken to ensure the safety of our guests.
We are so grateful for the hard work and preparation our presenters have contributed to create this fantastic program. I hope you will take advantage of the incredible and exclusive pricing we are offering for this event; you won’t find value like this anywhere!
