CANCELLED: ABA Day
ABA Day 2020 Registrants:
After taking into consideration recent events, including the declaration of a public health emergency in Washington D.C., the WHO declaration of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak as a pandemic, the growing number of law firms, corporations, and governmental agencies limiting or prohibiting travel, the possibility that the decision to restrict public access to the U.S. Capitol until the end of March will be extended, and the numerous recommendations against holding large group meetings, it is clear that going forward with ABA Day would be unreasonable and likely impossible.Therefore, the ABA has decided to cancel the in-person, Washington DC portion of ABA Day this year.
However, we still need your help and leadership. We are expanding our plans for a coordinated online digital advocacy effort called ABA Day Digital 2020 to advocate for our approved issues on those same dates. We will share more information with you shortly – including a link to access great advocacy tools we have created for your use. We look forward to working with you to help the ABA get the voice of the legal profession heard on Capitol Hill again this year.
I wish all of you good health.
Chair, ABA Day Planning Committee
