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.

Family Law

Established 1989 in cooperation with the High Point Bar Association to address matters of interest to attorneys practicing domestic or family law in Guilford County.  The section meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month from September to May.  Meetings commence at 12:30 p.m. and lunch is available.   Programs address topics of interest to domestic law practitioners. An annual picnic is held in June. All members of the Greensboro and High Point Bar Associations are welcome to attend. Section dues are $40.00 each calendar year; dues are payable by Jan 31, or within 30 days of joining the section.

Real Property

Established in 1989 to address matters of interest to attorneys practicing real estate law in Guilford County, including associate memberships by High Point attorneys, meetings of the Real Estate Section are held quarterly in September, November, March and June.  Meetings begin with a cocktail hour followed by dinner and a brief program.  Dues for the current year are $80. Non-member guests are welcome for a charge of $35.  All members in good standing of the Greensboro Bar are eligible to join. High Point lawyers are also eligible to join on a non-voting basis unless they are also members of the Greensboro Bar Association.
