Come New Year, the 150-year-old Milwaukee Bar Association will join the magazine fold with the January launch of its quarterly title, the MBA Messenger. The 22 page magazine is set to replace the organization’s monthly newsletter, called The Messenger.
With a full-color cover, MBA Messenger will be distributed to the organization’s 2,600 members as a member benefit, according to a report in Milwaukee’s Small Business Times. In addition to covering recent developments in law, The magazine will feature lifestyle topics, restaurant reviews and practice and technology tips.
"The Messenger in its newsletter format has always served as the principle vehicle for the MBA’s communication with its membership. Now, as one of America’s oldest bar associations turns 150, we are trading in that vehicle for a spiffier model," said editor Charles Barr. "The new professional, more pleasing look has already encouraged the contribution of articles from a broader segment of our membership and other non-legal professionals in the Milwaukee community."
