MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT V. LOWRY SNOW
Spring Convention in St. George
Let's come together for the Utah State Bar Spring Convention March 13 - 15 in "America's Number One Boomtown." Nestled in Utah's beautiful red desert, St. George has always been Utah's favorite "get away" location. Our Spring Convention is our opportunity not only to take a winter break (perhaps get in some golf), but also to discuss with knowledgeable practitioners the issues facing our Bar and profession. Additionally, we will have the occasion to meet and speak informally with local and national experts in various legal fields. Spring Convention also gives us the opportunity to renew old friendships and make some new friends.
The Spring Convention is approved for 9 hours of CLE credit, including up to 2 hours Ethics credit. A detailed brochure and registration information are available online at www.utahbar.org/cle. Early registration ends February 22nd.
I will look forwarding to seeing you in sunny St. George!
