Fall Council Meeting

The Section held its Fall Council Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts October 5-8, 1995. As in the past, all Committee Chairs were invited to attend the meeting and participate in the Committee Chair orientation sessions. The sessions covered topics on motivating committee members, publishing articles in the magazine, CLE program selection and how committee chairs can use the Internet.

Committee Chairs and Council Members also had the opportunity to visit the Section's home page and other World Wide Web sites on the Internet at the on-site Internet Center. The Internet Center provided a great opportunity for the Section leadership to get on the internet, see what is out there and get a feel for the marketing and information sharing potential on the Web. Section members are encouraged to visit the Section's web site at
