    Tina's Wish EmpowHER Series

    MRWBA is pleased to collaborate with Tina's Wish as a Community Partner for their EmpowHER Series! The webisode series educates and empowers women in relation to their gynecologic health. 

    The next webisode will be Be Heard: How to Be Your Own Best Health Advocate and it will air on Thursday, September 23rd at noon ET. To register, click here.

    Recordings of the first three webisode, Gynecologic Cancers: Facts & Differences, Disparities in Gynecologic Cancers and How We Can Close the Gap, and The Role Genetics Plays in Gynecologic Cancers are available on the Tina's Wish website


    Want to Be a Mentor or Serve on a Committee? Update Your Member Profile!

    As MRWBA prepares to enter a new Bar year, we'd like to ask each member (even those who just joined) to take two or three minutes to log in, review and update your member profile. This will be especially important to let us know what committee(s) you might be interested in serving on, as well as whether or not you wish to be a mentor or if you would like to have a mentor assigned in the coming year.

    • Be sure to complete the Mentorship field so we know if you would like to be assigned, or serve as, a mentor this fall.
    • There have been some changes to the committee structure, so be sure to let us know your interest in Committee Involvement. Working with an MRWBA committee is a great way to build your network while supporting the profession.
    • Make sure your preference to be included, or not, in the Lawyer Referral Directory is up to date as well as your LRD Practice Areas. (The practice areas also help us match you with a mentee who has related interests).
    If you have any questions, e-mail


    New Membership Category Added

    When the Board held their retreat last month, it was decided that it was time to add a new membership category: Full Member, Public Service Worker. The category is for any member who works in federal, state, local or tribal government organizations (including schools and the military), public child or family service agencies, 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, or tribal colleges or universities, and offers a reduced dues rate of $85 per year.

    As with all of MRWBA's membership categories, it is possible to set up automatic renewals if you would like to do so.

    If you are a Public Service worker, be sure to change your member category in your profile so that your renewal will be billed at the appropriate rate.


    Year-End Committee Reports Available

    The last year and a half have been challenging times for the entire world. MRWBA is no exception, but the year could have been much worse for us than it was. Despite the pandemic, MRWBA was able to end the year with a slight increase in the number of members, managed to shift all of our programming to a virtual format, and minimized the fiscal losses. For an update on what was happening within MRWBA this past bar year, click here to access a copy of the year-end reports 

    from the committees.
