We invite you to join the South Asian Bar Association of North America (SABA North America) as we are “Making Monumental Strides” with our 14th Annual Convention in Washington, D.C. from July 13-16, 2017. Our Convention presents a unique opportunity to raise your organization’s profile with the South Asian bar, a group that includes corporate and outside counsel, judges, law professors, and law students across North America.
Sponsorship, like membership, has its benefits. Through the included registrations, you are able to connect with our speakers and attendees while attending panels on current legal topics and networking events. Recently, that has included General Counsel and/or senior representatives from Accenture, Apple, Arcelor Mittal, Bayer, Caterpillar, Cisco, Compucredit, Del Monte, Dupont, eBay, Electronic Arts, Facebook, General Electric, IBM, Mass Mutual, Microsoft, Nationwide Insurance, Pfizer, Sempra Energy, Volkswagen, Underwriters Laboratories, and Walmart.
Our latest conventions featured Justice Russell Juriansz (justice of the Court of Appeal for Ontario), Rais Bhuiyan (World Without Hate), Nisha Desai Biswal (Asst. Secretary of State, Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, U.S. State Department), and Vanita Gupta (Head of Civil Rights Division, Department of Justice) as the Annual Gala speakers; and a Chai Chat with Judge Sri Srinivasan of the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C.
In addition to the impressive roster of attendees and speakers, SABA North America’s Annual Convention garners television and Internet coverage. Archived links of coverage are available on our website: http://www.sabanorthamerica.com/media-and-blog/.
Sponsoring the Convention is a great way to reach prospective clients and develop professional relationships with South Asian bar members. Sponsors receive recognition in various print and online Convention materials. Our Convention presents a unique forum for connecting with a wide pool of legal talent from across North America. Finally, the Convention allows you demonstrate your support for diversity in the legal profession.
We offer a variety of sponsorship opportunities to maximize your visibility among our members. Whether you are interested in sponsoring a plenary session, networking break, panel, reception, or dinner, we welcome your support. We continue to enhance our Convention app, providing another way to acknowledge your support and facilitate connection with attendees. Information on our standard sponsorship packages is below, but knowing that one size does not fit all, we are happy to discuss alternative sponsorship options to better suit your needs.
A portion of the sponsorship proceeds from our Convention benefits SABA’s charitable arm, the SABA Foundation. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports pro bono access to justice for South Asians in North America who face domestic violence, hate crimes, discrimination, racial profiling or immigration issues.
We look forward to seeing you in Washington DC in 2017!
2017 Sponsorship Committee
We’d like to thank our sponsors for their support of the South Asian community!
