Message From The Chair

Committee Members,

Another great Committee meeting in New Orleans is behind us and I just want to extend my appreciation to all or our subcommittee leaders and my Vice Chairs for their efforts in bringing you the great content and insightful discussions that always make these meetings so informative and thought provoking. In addition, I want to thank those Committee members that participated in the ABA section-wide CLE programming: Lynn Ciani of Numerica Credit Union, Leah Dempsey of CUNA, and Hal Scoggings of Farleigh Wada and Witt. It was great to see everyone at the meetings and to hear from those of you that could only participate by phone.

Please mark your calendars now for the next committee meeting:

Business Law Section Annual Meeting
September 14-16, 2017
Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers and The Gleacher Center
Chicago, IL

I am always interested in hearing from Committee members about how we can make your experience better. Please feel free to reach out to me between meetings with questions or comments.

Brenda Barrett
