The NBA's network has made significant strides in expanding the opportunities for its membership of over 20,000 lawyer, judges, educators and law students. The NBA has concerned itself with a wide range of projects, including:
○Purchased a permanent headquarters for the NBA at 1225 11th Street, NW, Washington, DC in 1984.
○Created its web site on the Internet to facilitate greater communication between the
Association and the general public, as well as to generate greater awareness of the NBA (http://www.nationalbar.org).
○Established communications with key corporations to generate retainers for minority law firms.
○Expanded the membership packet to include a Gold Master Card Program, car rental discounts, travel services, group discount purchasing and group insurance.
○Been approved as a sponsor in those states with mandatory CLE requirements.
○Operated a lawyer Referral & Information Center, a nationwide referral service for commercial lawyers.
○Expanded on the number and quality of continuing legal education (CLE) seminars offered each year.
○Expanded on the number of corporations providing discounts and benefits to NBA members.
○Fostered several long-term alliances with some of the world's most respectable corporations. Our aim is to establish on-going relationships between the members of the NBA and the products and services of several Fortune 1,000 companies.
○Established the NBA/ Carleton College Scholarship, a four-year scholarship awarded to as many as four deserving African-American students.
○Established The National Bar Association Crump Law Camp, designed to provide students between the ages of 14 and 17 and/or entering the 9th, 10th, and 11th grades with a comprehensive introduction to the American judicial and legal system.
○For more than ten years, the NBA has financially maintained itself primarily on receipts from membership dues, the Mid-Year Conference, and the Annual Convention. The NBA, as an advocate for the Nation's African American lawyers, continues to identify unaffiliated lawyers and guide them into the NBA network.
