Dear Mr. Simmons:

I am the president of the El Paso Black Chamber of Commerce and the owner of a small training and consulting business who currently uses an array of firms to obtain the necessary services required to satisfy the organizations different  needs.  Many of us are concerned in areas where it becomes necessary to have more than one service performed and not being able to obtain such services under on umbrella.

So  recently the Consumer Alliance introduced me to the idea of multidisciplinary practices; I was impressed at the services that can be accommodated by such services.  This would save myself along with countless others, both money and time spent searching for the right fit.

I am truly pleased that the American Bar Association has taken steps in considering the benefits that will be realized with Multidisciplinary practices.

I personally thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Thank you,

Bob Snead
President & CEO
