Congratulations to our planning committee, led by Shelly Geppert, our staff, the speakers, and our members for making the Section’s 27th Fall Conference in Boston a rousing success. The committee crafted an amazing array of CLE sessions, where speakers provided a range of perspectives. The success of the formal conference offerings makes me happy, but what makes me even happier was seeing so many people there, forging connections and having fun.
As a Section I don’t think we spend much time thinking about fun, but I believe it is a fundamental reason people are drawn to gather at our conferences. One of the greatest benefits of being a Section member is developing a network of lawyers and consultants from across the country; people who may send you work, or who you might send work to; people who share your interests ranging from views of legal practice to bands, activities, and even sports teams. The best way to develop and strengthen this network is to meet people at our conferences.
