  • Top-notch programming: Members receive a discounted registration fee to two conferences each year with programming that speaks directly to bar foundation issues and qualifies for CFRE accreditation.
  • Leadership opportunities: Members can grow in their careers by becoming involved with an NCBF committee or program.
  • Recognition: Members are eligible to receive the NCBF public service award, which honors the excellent work that your foundation is conducting within your community.
