Join us June 13-15 for the largest gathering of legal professionals in Iowa, the 2016 Iowa State Bar Association Annual Meeting. In 2015, more than 1,000 legal professionals from throughout the country descended upon downtown Des Moines making it one of the largest ISBA Annual Meetings to date! In 2016, the ISBA only looks to improve on last year's event.

Share insights and experiences with colleagues, take advantage of the excellent schedule of events presented by the ISBA Annual Meeting Committee, network at the lively social events and make connections with the exciting array of exhibitors.

As in year's past, this educational and social event will be held in conjunction with the Iowa Judges Annual Conference and the Iowa Court Reporters Association at the beautiful Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center (Iowa Events Center) in downtown Des Moines.

The annual meeting is the flagship event of the ISBA. Whether you attend for one day or all three days, there’s something for everyone at the 2016 Annual Meeting. Make no mistake about it, the
Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center will be the place to be for Iowa's legal professional community come June 13. We look forward to seeing you then.
