I have always been honored to be a member of the Academy of Certified Trial Lawyers of Minnesota (ACTLM). Membership means that you are a part of a very elite group of lawyers. Lawyers who have all proven that they can “walk the walk” not just “talk the talk”. As I stated at the 2018 Annual Meeting — I get more from ACTLM than any other peer recognition or professional group. As this years Dean, I encourage you to take advantage of all ACTLM has to offer.
On May 3, 2019 the Spring Meeting will be held at the Radisson Blu, Mall of America. Mike Bryant has put together an impressive day of educational opportunities. Historically our members receive approximately 5 CLE credits for attending this event.
In 2019 ACTLM will once again be going to the ballpark! On July 24th we have reserved space in a suite for the Twins vs. Yankees game. Registration and more information can be found on our web site.
On November 14, 2019 the Annual Meeting will once again be held the The Commodore in St. Paul. If you haven’t been to The Commodore since their impressive remodeling you won’t want to miss this opportunity. At the Annual Meeting we will once again honor a retiring judge with the ACTLM Distinguished Jurist Award.
Roger Kramer heads up the Dakota County Conciliation Court Referee program. If you have been through training to serve please volunteer your time when Roger seeks to fill the calendar. If you are interested in joining the ranks of Dakota County Referees contact Roger for information on the training.
It is a wonderful opportunity to serve your profession and I never fail to learn something when I serve in this capacity.
2019 is going to be a great year for ACTLM and I hope to see you at the above events.
