Leaders and all public defense professionals, do you have a question, an idea which needs a sounding board, looking for some advice, facing a thorny problem and can’t talk about it with anyone locally, or just need to vent?  Systems Builders Committee invites you to have a virtual cup of coffee with a colleague.

Systems Builders is here to help.  In addition to our technical assistance and mentoring programs, we are happy to announce our new, Virtual Cup of Coffee with a Colleague.  We are only a phone call or email away.  We have experience in presenting to boards and legislatures, leading offices, practice and ethics issues, human resources issues, recruiting and retention of staff, budgets, finance, engaging with other criminal justice players and communities, public and community relations, and many other issues related to public defense.  All of this help is available as a part of your membership at no cost. Contact us about any question related to public defense. 

If you want to help be a part of the greater collective knowledge and information sharing group and help other public defense professionals, we invite and welcome you to become a part of the Virtual coffee group.  

To be a part of Virtual Cup of Coffee with a Colleague, whether you have questions or want to help others or both, email Systems Builders and we will get you the help you need or put you on the list as someone willing to assist another.  If you would like to help, please let us know a little about you and what subject areas in which you are willing to assist another public defense professional.  We are a community and we want everyone to feel a part of this unique public defense association, the National Association for Public Defense.
