GBA Sections

The Greensboro Bar Association is comprised of five sections.  Each section is authorized by the Executive Board and has general supervision of its affairs, the power to fix its own time and place of meeting, and to adopt rules for its own government and course of action, including the election of officers and the appointment of such committees as it may deem advisable.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Established in 1998 for education of mediators and discussion about current issues.  The section meets the 4th Tuesday of every month, except December, from September to May at Tex & Shirley’s in Friendly Shopping Center.  Meetings commence at 7:30 AM and last for one hour, and breakfast service is available.  All members of the Greensboro Bar Association and certified mediators practicing in Greensboro are welcome.  There are no section dues.

Business & Tranactions

The section meets at least once each calendar year for dinner to socialize and discuss current issues of interest to attorneys practicing business, investment and transactional law in Greensboro.  Suggestions for discussion topics or speakers are always welcome.  All members of the Greensboro Bar Association are welcome to attend the section’s dinner meetings (usually held at the Greensboro Country Club), provided that we ask attendees to bear the cost of the dinner, which has in the past been approximately $50 per person.  There are no other section dues.  Members of the Greensboro Bar Association who wish to be included in the section’s mailing list should contact the section head.
