Annual Meeting set Oct. 5-8

Martin Luther King III

Martin Luther King III, author Isabel Allende and National Public Radio correspondent Susan Stamberg will headline the State Bar Annual Meeting this year, scheduled for Oct. 5-8 in Monterey. A new State Bar president and new members of the board of governors will be sworn in at the convention, which offers a low-cost opportunity for California attorneys to earn up to 20 MCLE credits in one weekend. Members whose last names start with A-G must complete 25 hours of MCLE  by Feb. 1.

The meeting also will feature an exhibit hall, a series of receptions honoring outstanding attorneys, a fun run/power walk and an art show. The California Women Lawyers will hold their annual dinner and the Conference of Delegates of California Bar Associations will convene.

Stamberg, the award-winning veteran of NPR’s All Things Considered, will deliver the key-note address at the women lawyers dinner, which this year will honor the late Tanya Neiman, a community lawyering champion, and Mark Hanis, president of Genocide Intervention Network.

Isabel Allende

Allende, author of The House of the Spirit and Of Love and Shadows and the founder of the Isabel Allende Foundation, will address one of the bar luncheons, and King, a human rights advocate and community activist, will speak to another. Associate Justice William Bedworth of the Fourth District Court of Appeal will speak at a breakfast co-sponsored by the Business Law Section.
