Conferences, Events, Meetings
« on: February 28, 2005, 07:29:59 PM »
Hello All.

I get a lot of e-mails and invites for a whole host of events and some of them I cannot attend either b/c I'm too damn busy or it's in i.e.Boise Idaho someplace. So here's a place we can all post events and such going on that others may want to check frequently (or infrequently  ;)) to see if we want to attend.

EMERGING BLACK LEADERS CONFERENCE

 
Rod Paige   
Diane Wilkerson   
Kwame Jackson 


Boston, MA (BlackNews.com) - March 5-6, 2005, Tufts University will be hosting the first annual Emerging Black Leaders Symposium (EBLS). This event will host over 400 graduate and undergraduate students from New England, featuring such noted speakers as State Senator Dianne Wilkerson, former Secretary of Education Rod Paige and keynote speaker, Kwame Jackson of The Apprentice fame.

Participants will engage distinguished speakers from the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, National Urban League, Boston Public Health Commission, Black Enterprise Magazine, Tufts, Harvard, and Columbia University, and others on the subjects of Health, Economic Empowerment, Criminal Justice and Education as they relate to African-Americans. Charged with converting scholarship into leadership, the panels will engage both participants and speakers with the charge of building networks and inspiring action.

EBLS seeks to raise awareness and strengthen the social and civic responsibilities of our participants, and provide a space for them to begin making a difference in the world they will command. By assembling participants and panelists in this weekend think tank, EBLS plans to positively impact the face of service leadership in the Boston area, and the future of Black America.

Black students and scholars are especially encouraged to attend EBLS, however people of all backgrounds are welcome. Saturday's program focuses on the presentation of issues by our panelists and Sunday follows with plenary sessions for organization and networking.

37th Annual NBLSA National Convention
Shattering Ceilings, Reaching New Altitudes!
March 30 - April 3, 2005
Denver, Colorado
Register Online!
Convention site:
Inverness Hotel and Conference Center
200 Drive West, Englewood, CO 80112

Greetings NBLSA Family:

On behalf of the National Executive Board, it is my honor to invite you to attend the Thirty-Seventh Annual NBLSA Convention in majestic Denver, Colorado. The Convention will be held March 30 – April 3, 2005 at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center.

Our theme for the 2005 convention is Shattering Ceilings, Reaching New
Altitudes. This convention will not only celebrate a historic, first gathering in Denver, but also invigorate and strengthen the hope, energy and profound potential that black law students offer our legal communities. This convention will honor the work of great legal minds who have gone before us, as well as offer workshops on practical techniques to enrich our future growth and progress.

As with previous conventions, this gathering promises to be one of NBLSA’s best and your attendance, as always, is a key component. Our seminars and panel discussions concern The Quest to Diversify the Legal Profession, Police Accountability and Legal Careers in Raising Social Awareness. Filled with the essence of NBLSA, the agenda provides tips on bar preparation, student debt management and networking resources. In addition to addressing issue s that face black communities, this year’s convention adds a number of workshops on litigation techniques, handling high profile cases and topics on subject-specific practice areas.

For those of us looking to socialize and network, the convention will offer
numerous opportunities to meet and mingle during the convention’s receptions and evening events. Let us not forget, the phenomenal Annual National Awards Banquet where NBLSA will award its first ever Lifetime Achievement Award. Finally, the convention will close with the ever- uplifting National Prayer Breakfast.

At the 2005 NBLSA Convention, come home, meet, share, reunite and create new bonds in the legal community. Join NBLSA as we conduct the business of the organization, compete in the Mock Trial & Moot Court Competitions and plant the foundations of our future!


Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at convention@nblsa.org.

I look forward to meeting you in the Mile High City!

National Convention Coordinator
