Greetings from the chair,
On the eve of what promises to be a banner year for Texas wildflowers I bring you greetings from our state capital. Texas is truly beautiful in the spring.
I have several items of news or updates to share. The first is the Texas School law Section Annual Retreat. It will be held on July 13th and 14th at the Westin La Cantera Resort in San Antonio. This is next to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and we can enjoy their fireworks in the evening. The facility is wonderful with several pools for kids and adults, tennis, golf and many amenities. The program will be interesting and stimulating. Please plan to attend and bring your family.
The School Law Section Annual Meeting will be in conjunction with the State Bar Annual Meeting, as
required. We would love to have this at the retreat, but the rules require it at the annual meeting. We are shoot-
ing for an 11:00 slot on Friday June 15 . We will vote in the slate of officers for the coming year at that brief
meeting. All members of the section are welcome to attend.
For your information, the state bar now has a web portal available to all attorneys. To participate go to www.mytexasbar.com. You can customize it for your particular areas of interest and practice areas. It contains news, real-time stock quotes, lawyer cartoon of the day, free legal research and many other items of interest.
Last but not least, we are soliciting sponsors for our retreat. If any of you have contacts with companies that serve the legal profession, let us know and perhaps we can ask them if they will contribute. Savings would be passed on to the members by reduced registration fees. Call Karen L. Johnson or me if you have ideas.
Have a super spring and see you at the retreat!
