Dear School Law Section Members:
I am pleased to report that the Executive Committee has finalized plans for the 2003 summer retreat and continuing education seminar. The retreat will be held July 18-19, 2003, in Galveston. The retreat activities will be held at the San Luis Resort near the beach. We have reserved a block of rooms at the San Luis and at the Hilton, which is within walking distance of the San Luis. A brochure with complete details will be mailed to all members in the spring of 2003. If you have suggestions for program topics, please let me know, and I will forward your ideas to the planning committee. We would also like your feedback regarding the retreat in general. Do you participate in the family dinner on Friday night of the retreat, or would you pre- fer a Saturday lunch? Is the length of the CLE program too long, too short, or just right?
We also would like to hear your general suggestions regarding the operation of the School Law Section. Feel free to e-mail any of the officers or council members with your suggestions. Our e-mail addresses are listed in this newsletter and on our section’s web page.
Finally, I want to close by thanking Debbie Esterek and Dorcas Green for yet another outstanding issue of our newsletter. Jon McCormick will be taking Debbie’s place as a coeditor and the Section thanks Debbie for her hard work as coeditor. The newsletter continues to be informative and interesting to our members. If you would like write an article for an upcoming issue, please contact Dorcas Green or Jon McCormick.
