The Awards Luncheon & Annual Meeting of the HCBA is a celebration of HCBA members who have distinguished themselves in leadership of the bar association and in advancing the values of our exemplary local legal community.
At the luncheon, held each year in May, the leadership gavel is passed from the current president of the HCBA to the president-elect (whose term of office as president begins the following July 1st), and volunteer leaders of the organization's board, committees, sections, and clubs are recognized.
HCBA members are honored for exemplary professionalism and for furthering diversity and inclusion in the profession. Non-attorney individuals and organizations also receive honors for advancing justice within the local Hennepin County community. A brief update on the state of the HCBA is presented by the executive director.
