2021 HNBA Annual Convention

We are pleased to announce that the 2021 HNBA/VIA Annual Convention will be hybrid event! Our CLE’s, plenary sessions and receptions will take place virtually on September 28-29! The convention will culminate with an in-person Gala at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, just minutes from Washington DC, on September 30, 2021.

The virtual format will be nearly identical to the CCC. We will offer high-quality programing that provides robust learning experiences for legal professionals at all levels. Our programing will include cutting-edge Continuing Legal Education sessions, plenaries, and specialty programs, along with an exhibitor showcase and multiple unique networking.

We are thrilled and excited to have an in-person gala! Personal connections and support are integral to who we are and what we do. The gala will include a short program featuring fantastic speakers, entertainment, Lifetime Achievement and Presidents Awards, and lots of catching up and dancing!
