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 primary focus. Accordingly, the BCWB will be suspending all in-person events, gatherings, and meetings until further notice. We look forward to the day when we can gather together to support our mission, but until then, we are working to bring you remote opportunities to learn, connect, and give back.  

We will continue to provide updates on COVID-19 related orders and notices from our local, state, and federal courts, which you can view by CLICKING HERE.

Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions on how we can serve you better by sending an email to info@bexarcountywomensbar.orgThank you for your continued support of our organization. Let’s all stay calm, safe and kind.

The BCWB Board of Directors
