Section Enrollment

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak in Alberta, we have suspended all in-person Section meetings for the time being. Meetings will continue to be offered by webcast, and are now available to all CBA Alberta members at no charge. Visit to see a full list of upcoming Section meetings.

Should you wish to join as Section to have access to meeting materials or recorded meetings, please contact your local Section Registrar:

Heather Walsh
North Section Registrar

Sandra Meyer
South Section Registrar


Please remember to purchase your Portfolio and Portfolio Plus packages BEFORE you register for Sections! You may then use your education credits and included Section(s) toward your Section registration, as these cannot be applied retroactively. For more information on packages, and to see which one is best for you, click here.

View our 2019-2020 Section Handbook for a complete list of available Sections and meeting dates. 

The Alberta Branch offers three levels of Section membership:

  • Full Section Membership: A full Section membership includes attendance at all section meetings in which you are registered (with meal).  You will receive meeting notices via email and online access to Section materials, minutes, case reports and video-recorded meeting (where applicable).  You will also have the opportunity to participate in Section governance, such as speaker and topic selection.
  • Materials Membership: A materials membership allows you to receive meeting notices via email, and online access to section materials, minutes, case reports and video-recorded meetings (where applicable). Meetings can be attended in person for an additional drop-in fee.
  • Webcast Membership: A webcast membership allows you to access live webcasts from North and South Sections (where offered).  This membership option is only available to CBA members residing outside of Calgary or Edmonton.  Meetings can be attended in person for an additional drop-in fee.

If you have any questions or concerns about Section enrollment, please contact Sandra Meyer in Calgary at 403-263-3707 or Heather Walsh in Edmonton at 780-428-1230.

Note: Section registration is a benefit available to Canadian Bar Association members only.  Section memberships must be registered and paid for separately from the National CBA membership.  Section memberships are individual memberships and are non-transferrable.  The Section term is September 1 to June 30.  If you cease to become a CBA member, your Section registration will be terminated.  No refunds or cancellations will be issued on any Section membership.
