Fellows of the Bar and Sustaining Members

KCMBA recognizes the 2018 Fellows of the Bar and the Sustaining Members for their generous contributions to the Association.

Fellows of the Bar

Fellowship is the highest level of membership at KCMBA. Any member who has been in practice for a minimum of eight years and has demonstrated a sustained commitment to the mission and goals of the Association is welcome to become a Fellow of the Bar for an additional annual contribution of $500.00. Fellows are recognized on the website home page, with a special color section in the Bar Directory containing headshot and bio, in the KC Counselor, on a special plaque in the Executive Board Room at KCMBA headquarters and with special stickers on your meeting name plates and all event name tags.
