NetWORKS! – NSBA’s Professional Networking Group

Purposes:

  • Main priority:  Promote the development of collegial professional relationships among group members.
  • Secondary priorities:  Provide education on effective networking skills and ethical issues related to professional civility, and promote collegiality and effective networking among all Nebraska lawyers.

Membership Requirements:

  • Membership is open to all voluntary NSBA members except law students.
  • Members will choose which group they wish to opt in to—Omaha, Lincoln, or Greater Nebraska—and may be members of any group(s) they wish.
  • Members agree to be matched for 6 one-to-one meetings each year and further agree to help facilitate their meetings on a timely basis. 
  • Members must be willing to provide a complete online profile and be listed in a group directory, which would be available only to other group members.
  • Members agree to report to NSBA if they AREN’T able to have their network coffee/lunch during the assigned window for any reason.  
  • Members may ask to be placed on hiatus status and will not be matched during that time.
  • Dues are suspended for 2016.

How it Works:

  • Registration is now open for all three groups - Omaha, Lincoln and Greater Nebraska.
  • NSBA will match members one-to-one in Omaha and in Lincoln.  NSBA will create the match, email the two attorneys, and it will be up to them to arrange coffee or lunch.  Match notices will go out around the first day of odd-numbered months.  Members will have coffee or lunch during the next 60 days.
  • Plans for Greater Nebraska matches will depend on the number and locations of members.  Participating may require a little more effort and advance planning by Greater Nebraska lawyers, and NSBA will work to offer a quality experience to participants. 

Larger Events:

  • Depending on the success of the lunches and interest of participants, the group could offer networking events for all members, tips for successful networking, and CLE seminars. 

Structure:

  • The group may become a section, but for now is a group under the NSBA umbrella. 
  • The group will have an advisory committee to help plan any group functions, and possibly to serve as extra matches in the event of odd numbers for a specific match round.  The advisory committee will include members from Omaha, Lincoln and Greater Nebraska.  If you’re interested in being on the advisory committee, please contact Lorrie Benson at NSBA.
