Welcome to the Speaker Resource Center!
Information to better prepare speakers at a DCBA Educational Program.


 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.

POWERPOINT TEMPLATE

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.
