Welcome to the Speaker Resource Center!
Information to better prepare speakers at a DCBA Educational Program.
BAR ASSOCIATION SECTION MEETINGS
DCBA Section Meetings are organized by
the Chair where DCBA members can
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 section.
We no longer provide paper handouts to meeting attendees, all handouts are provided electronically.

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 Section Chairs are encouraged to organize a seminar as an extension of the Bar Section Meetings, although seminar
organizers are not limited to Section Chairs. DCBA encourages attorneys, organizations, companies, etc. to submit a
Presenter Proposal form for a DCBA
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.
