CMBA 10th Annual Meeting

Cleveland Public Auditorium was buzzing Friday, June 2 when the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association celebrated it's 10th Annual Meeting! Darrell A. Clay of Walter | Haverfield LLP was inducted as the tenth President of the Bar Association; in addition, all of the new trustees of the Bar Association and Bar Foundation were sworn in in front of our 600+ crowd. We also celebrated an incredible milestone in the history of our organization: the 10th anniversary of the unification of two predecessor organizations, the Cuyahoga County Bar Association and the Cleveland Bar Association. As a unified bar, we have risen to great heights that gives us great cause for celebration.

Introducing the CMBA Leadership Academy

Bring Your Leadership Skills Full Circle


The CMBA knows lawyers...and we know leadership.  We're combining two of our strengths into one program specifically designed for the needs and interests of our members. Launching this fall: the CMBA's Leadership Academy.  

Whether you are emerging from the crowd within in your organization, or you have established yourself as a go-to leader, we want to inspire and challenge you to drive your successes to the next level.

Applications will be considered for two cohorts: one for Emerging Leaders (minimum 5 years legal experience) and Established Leaders (minimum 15 years legal experience). Each class will be limited in size to maximize individual engagement.

Golf Outing - June 26

We'll host our Annual CMBA Golf Outing at Westwood Country Club in Rocky River on Monday, June 26. We were thrilled to have yet another SOLD-OUT Outing at this beautiful course in 2016, and we are excited that this year's Outing is again sold out!

Registration and lunch will begin at 10 a.m., with a shotgun start at noon. A reception including dinner, a cash bar and a chance to win raffle prizes will immediately follow the rounds of golf. The Outing will be held rain or shine.

Team CMBA has declared May YOUR MONTH. Throughout May, we will be saying THANK YOU to our members for all they do for our Bar. We have 31 Ways in 31 Days planned to show members just how thankful we are -- no strings attached or fine print. We simply wanted you to know how much we appreciate you, our members!

We will be recognizing a member of the day, plus we'll offer contests, giveaways, fun events and more. If you don't yet like us on social media, now is a great time to start — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Be sure to follow us and join the conversation.
