Welcome From The Chair

Welcome to November.

Thank you to everyone who proposed presentations for the Committee's Winter Working Meeting in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, January 29 -30. We have rooms reserved at the Sonesta Resort and will be holding meetings and CLE presentations at the Nova Law School. We will soon send around the registration information, so plan to join us.

And thanks also to the people who proposed panel discussions for the Business Law Section's Spring meeting in Montreal, Quebec, April 7-9. We will announce our slate of panels in the next newsletter. We have some fantastic guides to Montreal in our Section and we look forward to a singular experience.

Please note that the new book project on social media law and the book project on the law of modern payments are both seeking people interested in writing or editing a chapter, or even in sharing the writing of a chapter. Let me know if you are interested. Finally, we has some more time before the Cyberspace Law mini-theme will be published in Business Law Today, so if you want to write a short, footnote-free article for BLT on a Cyberspace Law issue, let me know this month.

Enjoy your Veteran's Day, Remembrance Day, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and of course, National Cashew Day (23rd).
