As one of the leading bar organizations in the state of Texas, we are proud of our history and excited about our future. BCWB has a strong tradition of service to the community and of promoting equal justice under the law. Most importantly, we support Bexar County women attorneys, from varying backgrounds and practices, through education, networking, mentoring, and social support systems.
A MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD: COVID-19
Dear BCWB Members,
As we monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and follow the guidance of local, state, and national authorities, the health and safety of our members and our community remains our priority. At this time, BCWB will begin holding some in-person events. We recommend all participants of an in-person event wear a mask or other face covering, except while eating, drinking, or seated at your table. Masks will be available, if needed. We may take guest temperatures at the door. Event sizes will be modified to reduce the number of individuals in a room; as such, please RSVP and/or purchase your ticket(s) in advance. Finally, if you experience any COVID-19 symptoms prior to an in-person event, we ask that you not attend. We look forward to seeing everyone in a safe and conscientious manner.
The BCWB Board of Directors
