Presidents' Reception

The 2019 Presidents' Reception will be held on Tuesday, June 11, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Grand Hyatt, 1000 H Street NW, Washington, DC 20001.

For more information about the President's Reception, including law firm sponsorship opportunities, contact Connie Sinclair at 202-780-2734.

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 D.C. Pro Bono Center provides legal information, advice, and representation to more than 20,000 low-income individuals, nonprofit organizations, and small businesses every year. The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center is funded solely by voluntary contributions, not D.C. Bar dues.

The 2019 Presidents' Reception will honor incoming D.C. Bar President Susan Hoffman.

For information about the Celebration of Leadership: The D.C. Bar Awards Dinner and Annual Meeting, which immediately follows the Presidents' Reception, contact Verniesa Allen at 202-780-2802.
