The CLE Committee, chaired by Joan D. Hogarth, Esq., has embarked upon an active year. CLE has, in many ways, become the lifeblood of the Bar Association, providing opportunities for members to stay current on developments and critical thinking in their areas of expertise, meet their state licensing requirements, and come together as a community to share the best of their own experience with one another. The CLE committee continues to look for opportunities to work with other sections on the presentation of ADR programs tailored to the specific practice area. We welcome members interested in proposing programs and organizing new and creative programs that will continue to raise the Section’s profile in the Bar Association. Please share your ideas with us.
