InReach Award Recognizes Significant Contribution to the Success of an Online Continuing Legal Education Program


March 8, 2013InReach, a leading provider of online continuing education (CE) management solutions, announces Joanne Hinnendael of the New Hampshire Bar Association as the 2013 Partners in Excellence Award recipient. Ms. Hinnendael and her team have grown the bar’s online continuing legal education (CLE) presence during the past year, building on their reputation for meeting member CLE needs while producing non-dues revenue that can be used to fund important member programs.


“I was pleased to be chosen as the named recipient, but the award really belongs to the entire NH Bar CLE team,” stated Ms Hinnendael, NH Bar CLE Director. “Our members rely on us for relevant educational content that is readily accessible and helps them stay current in their practice areas while earning the CLE credits they need. Everyone on the NH Bar CLE team works very hard to ensure that we provide the highest quality CLE programming available.”


The Partners in Excellence Award is presented to an individual or organization that has worked in partnership with InReach to achieve continuing education program excellence and measurable growth that can be replicated by other associations. Last year the award was presented to the Oklahoma Bar Association.


“Ms. Hinnendael was the unanimous choice for this year’s award,” stated, Sara Spivey, InReach CEO. “She has achieved a level of success in revenue and reputation, far beyond organizations many times the size of the NH Bar. Her team provides members with a comprehensive selection of courses delivered in a wide variety of formats, from webcasts and in-person events to webinars and podcasts, and they have consistently received high marks from NH Bar members.”


Ms. Hinnendael received her award at the February ACLEA Mid-year Meeting in Clearwater, Florida.
