Greetings to all members of the School Law Section.
I would first like to wish all of you a joyous holiday season from the entire Executive Committee.
Because of feedback received at this year’s retreat, suggestions by members, and requests, we have contract- ed with the La Cantera Resort for the 2001 School Law Retreat. The dates are July 13th and 14th. This is a wonderful facility. It is located on a hill overlooking San Antonio and is contiguous to Fiesta Texas. The resort has numerous pools, a pool slide and waterfall, an exercise facility and numerous other amenities. We were able to negotiate a reduced rate of $160 a night. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend.
In conjunction with the retreat, I would like to thank Andy Ramzel and Kevin Lungwitz who have agreed to serve as co-chairs for the CLE for the retreat. Please give them assistance if they ask. They have already roughed out an excellent program and will be asking for help speaking. Thanks also to Bill Armstrong who has agreed to coordinate the golf.
For your calendars, you may want to note that the UT School Law Conference is scheduled for March 1st and 2nd. It will be held at the Hyatt Regency on Town Lake in Austin.
The State Bar has asked all attorneys to be sure to turn in your estimated pro-bono hours to them. If we don’t do this, it is more likely that the Bar would propose mandatory pro-bono.
As a final word, I would again like to thank the members of the Section Newsletter Committee and those who have contributed articles. This newsletter is really high quality and is a wonderful benefit to Section members. Thanks to all of you.
Season’s greetings and best wishes for an excellent New Year.
