Monroe County Bar Association just scheduled me for June 25th. I will be presenting Survival 101: Law Practice Emergency Planning for Death or Disability as part of their Lunch ‘n Learn Series. I expect that the registration details will appear on their web site shortly. This course will qualify for 1.0 Ethics credit. Hope to see you there.
As you can tell, since June is an end-of-compliance month, there is little doubt additional courses will be scheduled. If no county near you has booked me yet, don’t give up hope. The fat lady has not yet sung her last note.
I have quite a few CLE seminar presentations scheduled for May & June. If you’re going to be in the area, you might want to register for the CLE credits. I promise you will be both educated and entertained !

On Friday, May 11, 2012, I’ll be presenting two seminars for the members of the Lebanon County Bar Association. I’m really looking forward to presenting their first live CLE, as well as doing it in such an historical venue. From 11:00 am to noon I’ll be presenting “Records Management” and from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm I’ll be presenting “Disaster Prevention and Recovery”. Both are fast-paced and enjoyable seminars which qualify for 1.0 ethics credit each.
Right now registration numbers are moderate, so I’m hoping that if you’ve wanted to hear one of these seminars before but couldn’t make it when I appeared in your county, you’ll take advantage of close proximity and head over to Lebanon County.
The location is the award-winning historic Inn 422, which is a victorian-era-estate bed and breakfast. The inn-keepers have recorded the history on the Inn’s web site, and it is fascinating. Here’s a hint: it involves one of the wealthiest families in colonial-era America, a past president, forbidden love, and a suicide. Intrigued? I am too, but I hope not to have any encounters with the alleged ghost.
The pictures of the Inn indicate I’m in for a real feast for the eyes.
Hope to see you there!

Last year I had the pleasure of being invited to present “Best Practices for Financial and Procedural Management” to Drexel‘s law students. I am thrilled to report that the evaluations and comments from the students were so glowing that I have been invited back for an encore this year. My presentation will be on Monday, February 20, 2012, from 5:20 to 7:20 pm. There’s no sugar-coating on the concepts and doses of reality included in this presentation. But at least the law students come away a real giant step closer to knowing what to anticipate in the “real” world!
