Chapter Activity Fund

Outreach to Military Attorneys

As part of our outreach to military attorneys, we strongly urge you to reach out to the judge advocates of local military installations and invite them your programs as either guests or speakers as appropriate. We also suggest as a recruiting tool, that chapters consider setting a special rate for military attorneys for programs which are fee based.

Model Letters to Congress

The National office of the Federal Bar Association needs your help. We are requesting that each chapter and its members contact Congress immediately to urge action so as to avoid the automatic budget cuts that will cripple the federal court system. Your chapter's communication with Congress is critical. This package contains information on the issue, its importance and how you can help.
