Young lawyers who are interested to attend this year 2019 NBA Conference will enjoy 25% discount on early bird registration while the conference fee for 2018 would be retained for the 2019 Conference across board.
According to the NBA National Publicity Secretary and Chairman of the NBA-AGC 2019 Media & Publicity Sub-Committee Mr. Kunle Edun, the above resolution was reached at the meeting held by the NBA Technical Committee for the Conference Planning of the 2019 Annual General Conference on 16th May, 2019 in Lagos.
In his report,
“The TCCP affirmed it’s readiness to deliver a world class conference that will also be pocket-friendly in line with the assurances of the NBA President, Paul Usoro, SAN. In this regard, the TCCP recommended and same was approved by the NBA President for a drastic reduction in the conference fees for lawyers between the ages of 1-9 years at the bar. In furtherance of this the NBA President approved the TCCP’ s recommendation that lawyers between the ages of 1-4 years and 5-9 years at the bar shall be entitled to a 25% discount on early bird registration. The TCCP also resolved to retain the conference fees as scheduled for the 2018 conference (which was the same as that of 2017 conference). Therefore, the TCCP refused to increase the conference fees that were paid for the 2018 conference, and added a further discount for early birds only for members between 1-9 years of call.”
