Specialty Bar Organizations

Specialty Bar Associations (SBA) are independent organizations separate from the HSBA. For a fee, HSBA may provide a dues collection service to SBAs.  Listing an SBA or providing services for a fee to SBAs does not constitute or imply HSBA’s endorsement, recommendation, or approval of an SBA.  Mandatory member dues and fees are not used for this effort.
