  1. Off topic, but when is the State Bar going to get it together with their website? The login is such crap. What are we paying for?

    1. I should have replied rather than start a new comment.

      It worked fine for me. I used forgot password and they sent me a new one. It went to my junk mail but most of those types of emails do.

    1. Agree with 10:16. Who cares if their site sucks. Get over it there are a lot worse things going on for them to work on.

    2. I agree, but it sure is irritating when you are writing a great big check around this time of year and the website barely works. Maybe they can take it up at the next luxury-resort retreat or convention.

    3. Like planning their extravagant vacation to Texas at bar member expense.

    4. Except that it sucks worse than it sucked 3-4 years ago. They went backwards at substantial additional expense to you. It is just part of the Bar's overall issues which is that SBN offers less today than it did 5 years ago. LRE used to be self-sustaining. Did you know LRE is now subsidized by LRIS due to mismanagement? LRIS was giving away hundred of thousands of dollars to Legal Service providers and now has barely enough enough money to be self-sustaining. Yet the SBN moved into cushy new offices. Kim Farmer has done an excellent job of taking care of herself while failing to actually advance the Bar. How is the State Bar better today than it was 5 years ago? 10 years ago?

    5. Google the company that comes up in the address when paying dues, glsuite. No wonder the site doesn't work, that company has terrible reviews.

    6. @10:16 Well played, Sir. Well played.

  4. @10:51/10:52-- Or maybe they will invite you down to their shiny new offices with stone work and new furniture so you can discuss it with them and see where your money goes.
