Inns of Distinction Gala

About the Event

The Inns of Distinction Gala recognizes high performing American Inns of Court from across the nation that have achieved excellence in Inn management and programming. Inn leaders will gather at the Supreme Court of the United States to celebrate their accomplishments in advancing professionalism in the legal community through exemplary Inn programming and meaningful member engagement.

The gala is a black-tie event that begins with a cocktail reception in the East and West Conference rooms of the Supreme Court of the United States, followed by dinner and a recognition program in the Great Hall.

The 2024 Inns of Distinction Gala, will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2024 to recognize Inns that have achieved Platinum distinction in the 2023–2024 Achieving Excellence program as well as Inns receiving 2024 Program Awards. A list of Inns attending the gala will be available closer to the 2024 event.

The Experience…

“Becoming president of Sagamore Inn is one of the accomplishments of which I am most proud and joining other Inn members from across the country at the Supreme Court of the United States is one of the greatest honors I have ever received.

It was a surreal experience inside the courthouse. I met people from California to Florida who shared the same love and passion for the program that I had. Afterward, I felt like I had shared an experience with strangers who had become lifelong friends. I felt like it was an experience that was so powerful it could never be recreated. But it will. Next year another lucky group will gather to engage with others outside of their own Inn membership, to learn from each other, and to help to build community ties. To me, I cannot imagine any other experience in my professional life as quite as meaningful and I know I am truly blessed for having had that opportunity.”
