About Sections & Divisions
MCBA's divisions and sections plan and implement CLE programs, host social/networking events for their members and often participate in community service activities. Some produce publications that are made available to the general membership. Membership in these groups is the best way to meet and mingle with like-minded practitioners, enhance your legal knowledge and expand your network of colleagues.
Each section or division is headed by an executive board or board of directors which is normally elected by the group's members. Division board presidents are automatically members of the MCBA Board of Directors. Boards generally meet monthly and may appoint subcommittees to implement projects. Any member may attend the monthly meetings.
Any MCBA member may join the section of their choice or the Corporate Counsel Division for $30. Contact Cynthia Quinonez at (602) 682-8582 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Section & Division Community Pages
If you are a member of a section or division, you have access to that group's closed community page. This page, accessible only to members of the group, allows you to communicate through a social forum in a Facebook-like interface for professional interaction. This is a new feature now available to MCBA group members.
The MCBA's four divisions are either employment or age-related. Membership is automatic (if you are in the appropriate dues category) in all but the Corporate Counsel Division.
The 12 sections are subject matter or practice-related.
