SABA North America's signature event, its long-running Annual Conference, is the one time of year to meet with hundreds of South Asian attorneys in a professional, yet casual atmosphere. You can strengthen your community ties or create new ones while advancing your career knowledge through CLEs and interacting with others in your field. From the Welcome Reception to the Gala to the panels and networking events in between, the SABA North America Conference is the best place to mix and mingle, learn and share, with the best of the South Asian legal community.
Information on our 2021 Annual Conference coming soon!
The Leadership Retreat takes place every fall and is open to all SABA leadership - Executive Committee, Board of Directors, Chapter Presidents, Committee/Section Chairs and National Advisory Council. We take this weekend to plan not only for SABA North America's coming year, but its long-term goals and policies.
Information on our 2021 Leadership Retreat coming soon!
SABA North America's Annual Lobby Day is an opportunity for legislators and their staff to hear directly from us. It allows you to educate your elected officials about certain key issues that are important to SABA members.
Members from across the country gather in Washington, DC, to gain a deeper understanding of the issues that affect the South Asian community and then meet with key Members of Congress and their staffs to educate them on those issues. It is our chance to make our voices heard with the people who make our laws.
SABA North America's Naturalization Drive is one of our signature events, and is our way of encouraging permanent residents who otherwise qualify, to become United States Citizens. SABA North America attorneys volunteer their time to assist the public in filling out the N-400 (citizenship application) form, and various SABA North America chapters organize local drives and educational campaigns on naturalization.
SABA's South Asian Women's Attorney Network (SAWAN) hosts several bootcamps every year on topics such as marketing your legal skills, how to "pitch" for business, and salary and promotion negotiations.
It's more important than ever to stay connected and stay informed. We launched our SABA North America Webinar Series in 2020 to offer our members educational and networking opportunities in a virtual setting.
SABA North America is committed to speaker diversity in all aspects of programming. SABA North America strives to provide gender balanced programming that includes speakers of varying age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, level of legal expertise, and geographic location.
We will provide updates on our 2021 Webinar Series soon; in the meantime, please feel free to submit your ideas to our Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org!
