Thanks again to everyone who attended the 8th Annual Symposium, and thanks to Jackie (who we missed) and her committee for putting together a great event.  For those who could not attend, you can still get beaucoup IP CLE’s by buying the recorded program from the Bar.

Below are some of the pix courtesy of our Fearless Leader & Photographer Kimra.  Note that due to word limits, this email likely doesn’t contain all of the photos and captions, so click on this hyperlink in this message to be sure that  you are seeing all of the pix.
