These awards recognize how bar associations adapt to the needs of their members and the community at large by introducing new programs, ideas and methodologies that benefit everyone involved. Awards are handed out each year during the Bar Leader's Innovation Awards Ceremony and breakfast, which takes place on the Friday of NYSBA's Annual Meeting in January.
