Upcoming Programs Going Virtual - Awards Event Postponed and Deadline Extended

Thanks to the input we received from our members in a recent poll regarding the preference for in-person versus virtual events, our programs will be going all virtual through at least February. We are hopeful that, after that time, we may be able to hold some in-person events of some description.

Some of the specific changes that are happening include:

  • For December, instead of holding our Annual Woman of Achievement Awards Luncheon we are currently working with our December Platinum Sponsor, Minnesota Lawyer's Mutual Insurance, to arrange for a virtual CLE Program. Details will be sent out as soon as they are finalized.
  • The Awards program will be shifted to the spring and combined with our Mentorship program and presentation of the Phoebe Hall Mentorship Award. It is hoped that this will be an in-person event, perhaps held outdoors. 
  • Given the shift to the date of the Awards program, the deadline for nominations will also be extended. Complete details will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks.
The Board appreciates that so many members took the time to offer their input. As we near the end of what can only be described as an extraordinary year, we look forward to continuing to build our community and finding new ways to connect with our members.


Limited Sponsorships Still Available

MRWBA’s events, even the virtual ones, are possible thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. This year, we are offering two sponsorship levels (Platinum and Gold). These sponsorships provide an opportunity to promote your brand to a demographic of well-educated, professional women with an average salary of $101,126 per year. E-mail for details on available sponsorships.

We appreciate our sponsors’ continuing support during these challenging times!
