Bar elections are underway, and if you haven’t voted yet, please watch for an e-mail ballot later today. If you don’t see a ballot today, please check your junk e-mail folder, or follow the directions at the bottom of the election page.

We had a great convention in St. George last month, and I especially enjoyed riding my bicycle with fellow Bar members and family in celebration of Judge Quinn.

I’m pleased to announce the keynote speakers for Snowmass on July 16-19:

  • Thursday Keynote: Laughing Your Way through Life, Dave Dugan, Comedian
  • Friday Keynote: Law & Neuroscience, Professors Hank Greeley
  • Saturday Keynote: The Lawyer as Actor—the Courtroom/Boardroom as my Stage, Jerry Gardner

Book your rooms now, Snowmass lodging, and watch for a postcard later this month announcing online registration and the final schedule. We have held registration cost, so there is no increase for this summer, and, new this year, registration is waived for all Active-Under-3 attorneys.
