Join me at the Kalahari Resort October 23-25, 2008 in the Wisconsin Dells for the 3d Annual Wisconsin Solo & Small Firm Conference for 2 days of great CLE, networking and fun! Full details can be found on the conference website here.
This year's conference has 32 individual sessions in four tracks consisting of Substantive, Practice Management, Technology and Ethics/Quality of Life areas. In addition to these four tracks, there are three plenary sessions with National Speaker Kevin O'Keefe sharing his knowledge on blogs; Laurel Bellows of the ABA House of Delegates speaking on getting involved in your bar; and Connie Kilmark, personal finance guru speaking about dealing with financial stress (this session open to attendees and their spouses/significant others!). I will be presenting along with other great speakers including Ross Kodner, Jeff Krause, Margaret Hickey, Dean Dietrich, Lori Kanneberg and others. You can find all of the speakers here.
Attendees will have an opportunity to network with their peers, browse the Vendor area, receive Fastcase legal research training and spend time enjoying the Kalahari's numerous leisure activities. Attendees can receive 20% off Spa and Salon services during your visit and the conference room rate is also available for Saturday night and extend your stay.
The Kalahari has extended a special room rate to conference attendees of $139.00 per night for up to four persons in a room, but there's more: Each room includes four passes to the Kalahari's Indoor Waterpark, a $160.00 value! Float down the lazy river, learn to surf, enjoy a meal in one of the resorts restaurants or enjoy a massage in the Spa. But don't wait too long – the special room rate is only available until September 23, 2008.
Register for the conference by September 23, 2008 and enjoy early bird pricing of $250.00 for Wisconsin lawyers (and their staff that are registered at the same time) and WALA members; after September, the registration cost jumps to $275.00.
Each attendee will receive a US Flash Drive with containing the conference materials and the first 300 attendees will receive a copy of TechHit Software's SimmplyFile utility for MS Outlook.
I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones at this year's conference.
Practice Law. Manage Business. Enjoy Life!
See you there!
