Active participation in sections allows members to gain the maximum benefit from CBA membership. This involvement creates a special opportunity for the members to study issues, express ideas, apply talents and share experiences with others who have similar interests. Sections also offer valuable, informative and inexpensive seminars and institutes that generally offer CLE credits. The section member discount for a single CLE program often exceeds the total annual cost of joining the section. 

If you have general questions about a section, contact the section's staff liaison.
