Call for Presentations! The State Bar of Nevada’s Annual Meeting Planning Committee solicits your great ideas for the 2021 Waves of Change Bar Conference!

State bar sections and other interested parties are invited to submit their proposals for speakers/topics no later than November 30, 2020 using the form provided below.

General session and breakout session speakers will be asked to frame their presentations to align with the Waves of Change theme with consideration given to broad-based topics that provoke thought and continued discussion on topics such as social justice, diversity and inclusion, and national lessons that may inspire local action.
