During this challenging time, the IndyBar is dedicated to making many of our services, resources and tools available to members online so that you can keep thriving in your practice, even from home! While IndyBarHQ is closed, we’re excited to continue offering monthly free CLE as a part of the Free Fridays initiative, which you can access during April and May from the comfort of your own home!

On both April 3 and May 1, IndyBar members will be able to access the month’s free CLE program online! Starting at midnight, you’ll be able to access the program online until 11:59 p.m. that evening. April’s program is In-House Insights and May’s program is Hot Topics in the World of Environmental Insurance Coverage. You can access both of these programs during the designated time at

Need a headshot? Try these tips at home!

We’re sorry to have to cancel the Free Fridays headshot offering for both April and May, but don’t fret: you can take a professional, high-quality headshot yourself at home!

All you need is a digital camera or smartphone. If you’re using a phone, make sure you’re shooting in high-resolution mode so that you get a higher-quality image.

Utilize natural light. Unless you have professional-grade studio lighting, it’ll be hard for you to get the light right. It’s better for you to take advantage of natural lighting – it’ll look warmer and more inviting, too!

There’s such thing as TOO much natural light, though. You can get washed out, there can be awkward shadows, etc. Don’t take your photo with too much sunlight.

The simpler the background, the better. You don’t want your background to take the focus off you. Simple textures are best!
