2020 FBA Virtual Convention

"The Unconventional Convention"

October 14-16, 2020

What to Expect

The Fairfax Bar Association Board of Directors, in consideration of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, made the decision to transition its 2020 Out-of-Town Convention, scheduled for October 15-18 in Charleston, SC to an entirely virtual convention.


Transitioning the convention to a virtual setting was a complex decision. First and foremost, this was done with consideration of the health and safety for our registrants' and staff based on official health recommendations. The decision to go virtual will allow us to provide an engaging and meaningful experience for those who had expected to attend, while guaranteeing everyone's well-being.


Convention details and registration for the 2020 FBA Unconventional Virtual Convention are officially open and available. 


P.S. The 2021 FBA Convention will take place in Charleston, SC – stay tuned for more details!



Full convention registration for the FBA Unconventional Convention provides access to the Welcome President’s Reception, 9.5 (2.0) MCLE Credits, two morning fitness activities, Judicial Java, and virtual Bingo.  Attend a special Virtual Paint & Sip social activity on Thursday, October 15 at 6 PM for an additional cost of $70 to include:


  • A painting kit mailed directly to you which includes the following:
    • 16x20 canvas

Convention Sponsorship Opportunities


The FBA Annual Convention is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness and promote your organization’s brand. The FBA offers a wide range of opportunities which provide the ideal setting for showcasing your organization’s products and services. Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the difficult decision was made to postpone the in-person Convention in Charleston, SC.


In its place we have arranged a three-day Virtual Convention with educational seminars and plenty of opportunities to market your business. We encourage you to consider the opportunity to maximize visibility and recognition through our virtual sponsorship experiences. To make this the best experience possible for your organization, we’ve shaped packages that will give you sustained visibility and create connections during the Virtual Convention.


The 2020 Virtual Convention Sponsorship Opportunities Kit will be available soon.
