A Message from Steve Akers, New RPTE Section Chair

“We are excited about the many outstanding services and resources provided by our Section to Section members and to the public.  This year, we are planning to continue our major focus of emphasizing the value that is available to all of our members through our substantive Groups and Committees.  Most of our Groups and Committees will be having periodic conference calls that are available free of charge to anyone who wishes to dial in to a toll-free number.  The calls include discussions of substantive current developments, and the ability to dialogue with attorneys around the country as to how they are dealing with those issues in their practices. The conference call schedule will be available on the Section website soon!  Be sure to check back periodically to find calls in your substantive areas of interest. In addition, Section members can join any of the Groups or Committees free of charge to receive communications about Group/Committee activities and substantive developments.  Joining is free and easy!  Simply contact Bunny Lee in the RPTE office (312-988-5651; or go to to join one or more Committees.”
