Join NOBC for Our 2020 Mid-Year Meeting

Welcome to Austin, Texas, the BEST place to live in America according to U.S. News and World Report. Austin is an energetic and quirky city that has plenty to offer everyone—from the most casual tourist to the serious cultural traveler. Celebrating Texan culture and history as well as the uniqueness of the state, from its origins as a Mexican territory to its independence and, finally, to its incorporation into the United States, Austin serves as a great representation of all that is Texas. Whether you want famous BBQ, vibrant entertainment, or to just immerse yourself in an eclectic, vibrant city, Austin is the place to be.

Our exceptional programming for the Mid-Year Meeting includes discussions on ethical enforcement in federal jurisdictions, prosecuting the prosecutor, dissemination of the NOBC’s Anti-Money Laundering Tool Kit, and utilizing alternative discipline. We will also continue our conversations on the importance of lawyer health and well-being with a presentation titled “Vicarious Trauma Compassion Fatigue in Regulators” and on the impact of technology on the law with a presentation titled “Technology in the Courtroom and Your Office.”

On Wednesday night, you can choose from one of the dine-around restaurants or explore Downtown Austin and Sixth Street, one of Austin’s more historic streets and home to the entertainment district of the city’s urban downtown core. 

On Thursday night, we are hosting a networking reception followed by two add-on optional activities:

  • Austin Live Music Crawl
    This tour is led by a local musician who will chat about Austin’s live music history, give you the latest scoop on the current music scene, and take you to iconic venues and new clubs, all while getting an overview of the city.
  • Esther’s Follies
    For over 40 years, Esther’s Follies has been entertaining sold-out audiences with political satire, comedy sketches, Vegas-style magic, and hilarious musical numbers. Esther’s has been hailed as “Austin’s answer to Saturday Night Live,” with sharp, insightful comedy performed by talented actors, entertainers, and musicians.

The conference is at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center located on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. The hotel and conference center offer an immersive experience in a technologically advanced facility that carries all the benefits of being on campus and is just steps from downtown.

We look forward to seeing our fellow NOBC members as we gather for the Mid-Year Meeting. The meeting promises to be the ideal setting for networking with old friends and colleagues, meeting new friends and colleagues, and benefitting from each other’s experiences.
