The Professionalism Committee is part of the larger CABA CLE Committee.  This component is intended to be both a resource to its members-encouraging and advising them on the importance of professionalism and civility-and an outreach to the community, emphasizing CABA’s commitment promoting professionalism.

In serving its mission to be both a symbolic reminder and a functional resource and training center to foster the highest standards of our profession, the Committee focuses on the following:

              1. A forum to discuss issues and address important ethical or professional issues affecting broad areas of practice.
              1. Training opportunities regarding new and existing professional rules through:
                            1. CLE seminars- including all-day, luncheon and web based seminars.
                            1. An ethics or professionalism column in CABA Briefs magazine with current ethics opinions and changes to its rules.
