On February 2, 2017, BANG co-hosted the first annual “Alphabet Soup” mixer, a networking event designed to bring together young attorneys already active in local bar associations. The event took place at Scholars, at 25 School Street, from 6-8pm, and was very well-attended. Attendees had the opportunity to learn about each other's work, their respective associations, and make valuable professional connections. The following bars were represented: AALAM, BANG, BBA, MAHA, MBA, MBLA, MA LGBTQ Bar, and SABA GB!
Asian American Lawyers Association
Boston Associates' Networking Group
Boston Bar Association
Massachusetts Association of Hispanic Attorneys
Massachusetts Bar Association
Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association
Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association
South Asian Bar Association - Greater Boston
Elizabeth McEvoy, who is a member of BANG and also chairs the Social Committee of the New Lawyers Section of the BBA, coordinated the event alongside Greg Bombard. Inspired by the success of the ABC Mixer, BANG will seek to coordinate with Boston's various bar associations throughout the year to put on social and substantive programming.
