The “San Francisco Bank Attorneys Association” has rebranded to the “Bay Area Financial Services Legal Association” (BAFSLA). Please join us on March 14 for our first event under our new name.
BAFSLA community, we are thrilled to welcome the entire Bay Area financial services legal community to join us for a complimentary evening to discuss the state of the employment market.
Key financial services and legal recruiters will talk to us about trends in the employment environment; how to help your companies and law firms think through strategic changes; how to attract, retain and develop talent; and how to make yourself marketable now and in the future. We will include a photo booth so you can update your LinkedIn profile, and plenty of time for networking over great drinks and appetizers.
