As one of the leading bar organizations in the state of Texas, we are proud of our history and excited about our future. BCWB has a strong tradition of service to the community and of promoting equal justice under the law. Most importantly, we support Bexar County women attorneys, from varying backgrounds and practices, through education, networking, mentoring, and social support systems.
We continue our long history of service to and support of women attorneys as we continue our LEAD Academy!
A MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD: COVID-19
Dear BCWB Members,
After careful consideration of the escalation of Coronavirus (COVID-19), and following the guidance of local, state and national authorities, the State Bar of Texas, and our local courts, the BCWB will be postponing all in-person events, gatherings and meetings from March 15 – April 15. We will continue to monitor the outbreak of Coronavirus and will provide updates and notices of any further postponements of events.
The health and safety of our members and our community is of primary importance, and it is clear that postponement of in-person events and other social distancing measures are necessary to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and protect our collective welfare. CLICK HERE to view orders and notices from our local state and federal courts.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions on how we can serve you better by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your continued support of our organization. Let’s all stay calm, safe and kind.
The BCWB Board of Directors
As we face our new uncharted reality today, a lot of us feel helpless and wish we could do more. Here is a chance to aid the local nonprofits that support our community so that they may continue to offer much needed services to the public. At the request of Mayor Ron Nirenberg in response to the COVID-19 emergency, The Nonprofit Council is now working in concert with the City of San Antonio to provide the Big Give Emergency Relief platform to assist with the raising of critical funds for nonprofits during this time of exceptional need.
