D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center Presidents' Reception

The 2018 Presidents' Reception will be held on Tuesday, June 12, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Mayflower Hotel, 1127 Connecticut Avenue NW.

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 2018 Presidents' Reception will honor incoming D.C. Bar President Esther Lim and celebrate the Pro Bono Center's 40th anniversary of serving the community.

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.
