Anyone participate in professional associations they love? Talking about professional groups for publishing, speaking, and networking. ABA has been great for me, both BLS and Sci-tech sections.

I like trade organizations that aren't lawyer-heavy. It helps me learn about the day to day of my clients' businesses that I might not get to see otherwise.

I even network in trade organizations that are mostly government employees. That particular board position got me an offer from a T50 law school to head up it's program for my practice area. And one time, a client was having issues with a government contract, and when I saw who the contracting officer was, I was like, "Hang on, let me text him to see what's going on..." The payoff is not immediate. But after about five years (which, if you start right away, is nothing), it becomes huge. I cannot speak highly enough about this type of networking.
