Mecklenburg County Bar/Mecklenburg Bar Foundation

 Bar Leadership Institute

 The primary focus of the Mecklenburg County Bar (MCB) and Mecklenburg Bar Foundation (MBF) Bar Leadership Institute (BLI) is to identify and develop leaders for the MCB and MBF.  The goal of the BLI program is to provide an opportunity for participating attorneys to:

  • develop their personal leadership potential and skills to become a leader in the Bar/Foundation;
  • become aware of leadership opportunities with the Bar/Foundation and the greater Charlotte community;
  • consider pressing Bar and community issues with peers and presenters of the highest caliber; and
  • develop a spirit of lasting collegiality with their fellow participants.

The BLI begins with a kickoff dinner and volunteer-recognition event in January, followed by a mandatory weekend retreat. During the four months following the retreat, participants will have opportunities for individual coaching by the program facilitator and will attend a series of seven evening sessions featuring special guests.

Application to the BLI is open to MCB members who have been practicing attorneys for at least three years. Program dates and the application for the Class of 2018 are coming soon.
