2010 Fall Meeting & National Solo and Small Firm Conference
October 22–23, 2010
Sheraton Austin at the Capitol
The General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Division invites you and your family to join us for the ABA GPSolo Division Fall Meeting at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol in Austin, TX, from October 21–23, 2010.
This year’s meeting, the 5th Annual National Solo and Small Firm Conference, is chaired by Vicki Levy Eskin and features tracks dedicated to Smart Substantive Law, Smart Soloing, and Smart Practice, with speakers hailing from Waukesha and Guadalajara and points in between.
After the GPSolo Council holds its meeting on Thursday afternoon, we’ll enjoy a Welcome Reception at Threadgill’s World Headquarters (adjacent to Armadillo World Headquarters). On Friday, we’ll have a lunch and our awards ceremony to help kick off the National Solo and Small Firm Conference, and follow up with a reception for conferees on Friday evening. We will finish the conference on Saturday afternoon with a closing plenary session—60 Tips in 60 Minutes.
You may now register for the Fall Meeting & National Solo and Small Firm Conference. Please click here to take you to the registration page.
The Fall Meeting & National Solo and Small Firm Conference website is now available. Please click here to take you to the website. Please be sure to check the schedule because we will be having committee meetings on Thursday morning.
We will also be joined by the ABA Standing Committee on Group & Prepaid Legal Services/API Board.
We’re really looking forward to seeing all of you in the capital of the Lone Star State.
And, as my wife and kids would say, “Hook ‘em, Horns!”
