Our Lincoln Memorial Banquet is coming up quickly, on February 16. Please attend this annual highlight event—get registered now on the PCBA website! It will be a satisfying evening in many ways!
In addition to our current Winter Series CLE courses presented by local attorneys focused on practice in the Tenth Circuit and in Central Illinois, we also have the free Brown Bag series of short, hot-topic and/or “how-to” seminars coming up in March. Registration is open for those! Our continuing legal education programs are the best way to learn about practicing law in our area, so take advantage! Thanks to CLE Chair Kate Swise and all those members who have put together these presentations!!
Congratulations to Communications & Technology Chair Kate Legge for her selection to the bench in the Tenth Circuit! Also to Stu Umholtz, and to Frank Ierulli, for their selections as circuit judges.
On another note--having a successful law practice includes making time for your family and personal life, and we know from experience that finding the right allocation of time between business and personal can be difficult to impossible, stressful, and usually an always-changing, never-ending task. Be sure not to shirk the effort though, it is all so important. And part of your personal time commitment should be dedication to regular physical fitness and positive mental health. Devote some of your personal time to those areas!
Here’s hoping that Gertie’s prediction of six more weeks of winter is going to be on mild side, and that spring is not too far away!
