Bar Weekend 2024

March 8-10, 2024  ♦ Omni Bedford Springs 

Message from AABA President Marla Zide:

On behalf of the Anne Arundel Bar Association and the Bar Weekend Committee, I invite you to join us for Bar Weekend 2024, an opportunity to take some time for yourself, rejuvenate your passion, and connect with other AABA members.

I am excited to spend this weekend with you in the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania where we will enjoy delicious food and drink, family fun and more. Our Bar Weekend events will take place at the Omni Bedford Springs. The resort is only 150 miles from Annapolis and is the perfect place to reconnect. It is a resort of “firsts.” Home to the first indoor swimming pool, one of the country’s first golf courses, and their spa treatments were inspired by the natural healing of springs first used by Native Americans. Guest rooms and suites embody the heritage of Pennsylvania coupled with modern amenities and expansive balconies. Six welcoming indoor and outdoor dining venues offer the finest local produce and signature drinks, served alongside spectacular views. Members can also explore the local area easily, with downtown Bedford on your doorstep and a variety of historic tours within walking distance of the resort.

I am so excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Rebecca Heiss! Rebecca is a stress physiologist and biologist who has created an incredible program to help high-achieving individuals and organizations eliminate the barriers that prevent them from achieving their highest levels of performance.

Bar Weekend is the perfect time to bring new energy and ideas to your legal career and to enhance your relationships with other members of the bar. We have planned an educational program that combines timely legal knowledge with a focus on mindfulness and emotional intelligence.

I hope you will join me and your fellow AABA members as we build friendships and create memories together!
