Since 2003, the Greensboro Bar Association Foundation has been allocating 5% of assets as grants to organizations who apply and meet the grant criteria. View Foundation Grant History here.
The Board of Directors consists of five officers–President, President-Elect, Immediate Past President, Secretary, and Treasurer–who serve one-year terms plus nine directors who serve three-year staggered terms with three new directors being elected each year. The duties and responsibilities for each position can be found in the Job descriptions page. Each member of the board is required to adhere to the Conflict of Interest policy.
Contact information–phone numbers, email addresses, and fax numbers–can be found at the “Contact Us” tab above.
Advertisers have the option of signing an annual contract to run their advertisement in each of the nine monthly issues during the fiscal year. The Advertising Contract is available for both annual contracts or for month-to-month contracts. Also view the Advertising Options for the sizes and orientations on the page and their associated costs.
The newsletter is published nine times each year. It is sent to members at the beginning of each month from September through May. It contains a message from the President, a list of the current executive board, articles of interest, announcements of upcoming events and meetings, and advertisements.
Articles are submitted to the newsletter editor while advertisements are sent to the office administrator. Advertising is offered in a variety of sizes, both vertical and horizontal orientations, at a nominal cost. The Advertising Options page demonstrates the choices. Advertisers may choose an annual contract to run their ad each month at a 10% savings over the cost of advertising on a month to month basis. The current contract is available on this website.
Efforts are underway to build our eighth Habitat for Humanity House in 2017. Please complete the 2017 Habitat Contribution Form and the 2017 Habitat Volunteer Form. You may also make a donation online at
Habitat House Online Donations.
From time to time, the Board of Directors initiates a special project which may require funding from the Foundation plus additional input, both in work and monetary contributions, from the GBA members. Past projects include seven Habitat for Humanity houses and playground equipment for Foust Elementary School . The most recent project was the 80th Anniversary Habitat House pictured here:
