DCBA EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
BAR ASSOCIATION COMMITTEE MEETINGS DCBA Committee Meetings are organized by the Committee Chair where DCBA members earn 1 hour of free MCLE or PRMCLE credit. Presentations must include significant intellectual, educational or practical content that increases participant’s competency as an attorney and deals primarily with matters related to the practice of law. Bar Association Meetings take place at noon and the date varies based on each committee.

SEMINARS DCBA Seminars are MCLE or PRMCLE presentations over 1.5 hours in length and are in- depth presentations on a particular topic related to the practice of law. Members and non-members are charged a fee to attend a seminar. DCBA Committee Chairs are encouraged to organize a seminar as an extension of the Bar Committee Meetings, although seminar organizers are not limited to Committee Chairs. DCBA encourages attorneys, organizations, companies, etc. to submit a Presenter Proposal form for a DCBA Seminar.
MEGA MEETING DCBA’s Annual Education Day “Mega Meeting" is a daylong event in January featuring up to 5 hours of MCLE and PRMCLE credits and the opportunity to host local exhibitors. Attendees can connect with various areas of legal practice with engaged presenters and network with colleagues.

The DCBA has built 4 PowerPoint templates in order to assist you in developing your PowerPoint presentation slides. We ask that you choose one of the following templates:
Tips for Creating Effective Presentations: 1. Minimize the number of slides. 2. Choose a font style and size your audience can read from a distance. 3. Keep your text simple (remove "a" and "the"). 4. Make slide backgrounds simple. What you see on your computer may not project the same way. 5. Arrive early to test any videos or links to the internet.
