Due to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation and the alarming rise in recent case counts, NCAJ will keep all programs virtual through Nov. 30, 2021. Included in this are all CLEs, member programs and meetings of the board and committees.
We regret that we cannot gather in person at this time, but the safety of our members and staff must remain our priority. NCAJ leaders will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep members updated on new developments with an eye toward a more hopeful forecast.
