Committee Online Communities

connect.MOBAR online communities

connect.MOBAR is our new online collaborative tool designed exclusively for Missouri Bar members that combines the instant, active response features of the old email listservs with newer, digital-friendly discussion forums. You can start new threads in each “community” or find archived conversations through the search feature. All in real time, daily digests or no emails at all - you decide. As discussions develop within the community, the users’ posts and uploaded documents will create a rich archive of searchable content to help new and existing community members find answers to their practice questions. There are many added bonuses like the ability to share large files without cluttering your inbox and instant access to your member contacts through a more user-friendly member directory. 

Try it out for yourself. Get started by signing in at (in the top right corner), using your bar number and PIN. Don’t remember what they are? Both are located on your bar card. If signing in for the first time, you will be asked to agree to the Terms of Service. (TIP: If signing in from a work or personal device, we recommend you click on the “remember me” box the next time you log on— then you won’t have to on future visits.)

We understand the value of networking and knowledge sharing, and we’re excited to provide Missouri Bar members a better environment to connect and engage in real time. Find more information on this new member benefit in the Frequently Asked Questions.
