Monthly Networking Meetings
The Solo-Small Firm Section networking meetings are a great opportunity to connect with your peers, as well as a practice management and technology discussion forum. The meetings are open to all CBA members, not just Solo-Small Firm Section members, the sponsoring entity. Colorado Springs routinely offers CLE credits, although sometimes there is no formal agenda, and no RSVP is required to attend any of the meetings. We encourage you to think about and prepare questions or ideas to present to the group. Don't hesitate to e-mail a meeting coordinator to suggest a CLE topic and/or speaker!
If you're interested in starting a networking meeting in your area, contact Section Chair Dave Sprecace at email@example.com or (303) 454-8260, or Reba Nance, Section Staff Liaison, at (303) 824-5320 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The CBA Law Practice Management/Risk Management Department is available to assist you with marketing your meetings via meeting notices and advertising in the CBA and DBA publications and your local bar newsletter.
