The DCBA is pleased to announce that a new website and database will be launched during the second week of July.  The inauguration of this new system is a culmination of months of preparation.  Because the current database is over 10 years old and cannot interface with the website, the Association has purchased a new and comprehensive system to enhance the experience of our members when using the website.

Some of the features of the new website include:

  • ability to pay dues and register and pay for events online
  • individual account access for our members
  • blogging capabilities and discussion groups for sections and committees
  • interface with social media, such as Facebook and LinkedIn
During September and October, 2014, the DCBA will host a series of training sessions at the Bar Building designed to help our members access the new system and maximize their user experience.  More details about these training sessions will be circulated in August.

The Board and staff of the DCBA wish all of our members an enjoyable and restful summer!
