Where Did My Regional Conference Go?

Business Law Conferences:
Portland, Chicago, Fort Worth, and Philadelphia

Thank you to all of our members who gave us feedback and suggestions on what have historically been called the regional conferences. We used this feedback and these suggestions to step up our game and to transform the Regional Conferences into our Business of Law Conferences.

You may be asking what has changed and why?
In past years, you told us that highly relevant education and networking were the top benefits that kept you coming back year after year. We kept those components of the conferences; those things have been working for you. The Business of Law Conferences will offer sessions in all competency areas, and networking events are built into the schedule. In past years, you have asked us why are the educational sessions different from one location to the next. In past years, many have been unable to attend their Regional Conference due to scheduling conflicts. We listened and now each Business of Law Conference will provide the same programs and speakers. Now you will have flexibility to get the same content at all locations, making it more convenient to attend and benefit from the education.

We have kept the best features of the Regional Conferences, while elevating the high-level content, to offer the same forward-thinking and actionable education at all locations. To reflect this new flexibility and high caliber of these conferences, we needed a new name: Business of Law Conference. Register soon and take advantage of early bird deadlines! 

This fall, the education sessions will include:

  • New profitability strategies and models
  • Proven cyber-security solutions
  • Evolving technology
  • Conscious communications and better policies
  • Future trends in marketing, operations and leadership          

If you cannot make it to Portland, come to Chicago, Ft. Worth, or Philadelphia for the same program. No matter what conference you attend, you will make new friends and professional connections.

Register for Business of Law Conference. Early bird deadline for Portland and Chicago are fast approaching. We look forward to seeing you in at the conference of your choice this fall.
