Exposure to 800 Attendees
With approximately 800 attendees, the AABA Annual Dinner is the largest annual bar association installation dinner in the San Francisco Bay Area. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with Asian American general counsels, local judges, and other legal professionals!
Meet General Counsels and Judges
High-level sponsors (Benefactor, Platinum, and Gold) and Foundation donors ($250+) receive tickets to the exclusive General Counsel and Judges Reception. Last year’s attendees included general counsels from PG&E, Netgear, Samsung, Varian, Hawaiian Airlines, GoodData, and Optimizely, among others.
