GPSolo 2010 Fall Meeting and National Solo and Small Firm Conference
October 21–23
Sheraton Austin
Austin, Texas

Mark your calendar now for the National Solo and Small Firm Conference, which will take place in conjunction with the ABA General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Division’s Fall Meeting in Austin, Texas. It’s a growing trend for small firm lawyers to gather to network with other like-minded lawyers, get information on technology products appropriate to their size of practice, hear well-known speakers, and generally have a good time. The National Solo and Small Firm Conference allows you to build a network and develop referral sources from across the country. The educational offerings at the conference will feature presentations from a mix of nationally known legal experts, veteran members of the GPSolo Division with advice to share, active participants in the SoloSez online community, practice management advisors, and other solos and small firm lawyers just like you. This year the schedule has been slightly modified to ensure that all attendees can participate in the sessions. The Division Fall Meeting will be held prior to the start of the National Solo and Small Firm Conference.

ABA TechEZ Training Tuesdays

ABA TechEZ Training Tuesdays provide ABA members with expert technology training in manageable doses—usually 15 minutes or less. The training sessions are focused on specific tips, tricks, features, or products. Training is held every Tuesday at 2:00 pm Central Time, and recordings of the live training are posted soon afterward at the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center ( http://new.abanet.org/centers/ltrc/Pages/techez.aspx). Be sure to visit the training calendar there to learn about upcoming topics.
