A Message from Roger Winston, New RPTE Section Chair

As incoming chair of the Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section of the ABA, I want to thank you for your membership in the Section. I have had the pleasure of being an active member of the Section for over 25 years and am now honored to have the privilege to serve our 30,000 members.

I sincerely hope you continue to take advantage of the full benefits of your membership in the RPTE Section, including our quarterly RPTE Journal and bi-monthly e-Report and Probate & Property. We are always seeking informative materials for these publications and welcome your ideas and contributions.

I encourage you to join and participate in one or more of our excellent groups and committees, many of which offer free monthly conference calls to discuss cutting edge substantive developments that are sure to affect your practice. These groups and committees provide an outstanding forum for brainstorming and networking with leading practitioners across the country. I also hope you will mark your calendar and start planning to attend our 21st Annual Spring Symposia, May 6-7, 2010 in Philadelphia.

These certainly are challenging times for the legal profession, but these challenges also create new and exciting opportunities for all of us. Both the ABA and the RPTE Section are committed to continue to provide exemplary services, products and benefits to our members to help you survive and prosper during the current economic slump and to emerge even stronger.

Please regularly visit the RPTE website here for even more information on opportunities to be involved and engaged in your Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law.
