The Bar Association of Erie County relies on sponsors to play an important role in the success of bar-related events and activities.  

Good mentoring and networking often occur outside of the law firm - get connected and stay connected by becoming an event sponsor today!

Becoming an event sponsor helps the Bar Association defray costs, keeping ticket prices affordable so that all members have the opportunity to enjoy our activities. It also allows us to upgrade many of the services and amenities provided at these events.

Programs such as the Annual Dinner and the Law Day Luncheon allow us to publicly appreciate excellence in the legal community and beyond. The President's Ball and Family Sports events promote collegiality and camaraderie among members of the bench and bar. 

Supporting your bar association at these events maximizes your visibility within the legal community and enables us to continue offering highly spirited, top notch social events for all to enjoy.

As a benefit of being an event sponsor, you will receive regular print recognition in the Bulletin, public recognition at each event, and complimentary tickets for each sponsored program. You will also be listed on our website, with a direct link to your firm's website.

To take advantage of this special opportunity, please contact Susan Kohlbacher, Assistant Executive Director at 852-8687 ext. 120 or skohlbacher@eriebar.org.
