Annual Events

Presidents' Reception

Each year, past presidents of the D.C. Bar host the Presidents' Reception to honor the incoming D.C. Bar president and to support the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center. Contributions to the Presidents' Reception provide nearly one–third of the budget for the Pro Bono Center, which is supported entirely by voluntary contributions.

The 2015 Presidents' Reception honored incoming D.C. Bar President Timothy K. Webster.
