1.         9th JD Court Video Conferencing Presentation & 9th JD Bar Association Annual Meeting.  The Courts of the Ninth Judicial District have recently begun using video conferencing technology to conduct hearings before out-of-town judges via the intranet.  (For example, an emergency hearing in Rio Blanco County may be conducted before a judge located at the Garfield County Courthouse using video conferencing.)  The Courts would like to present this information to the local bar associations in order to familiarize attorneys with the new use of this technology.  The presentation for the 9th Judicial District Bar Association members will be held at the Garfield County Courthouse, Room 402, on November 20, 2003 at 12:00 noon.  The Pitkin County Bar Association will participate in the same presentation from the Pitkin County Courthouse using the video conference technology.


Immediately following the video conferencing presentation, the 9th Judicial District Bar Association will hold its annual meeting.  The agenda includes 2004 officer elections, a presentation by Laura Wassmuth regarding a local CWBA group, and other business that comes before the Association.  Lunch will be served to attendees of the video conferencing seminar and annual meeting, so please RSVP to Nicole Garrimone at or 945-2261 no later than November 17th.  Lunch will be catered by Eighth Street Deli, and the cost for the lunch is $5 per person.


2.         9th Judicial District Bar Association Holiday Party.  MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!  The 9th JD Bar Association 2003 Holiday Party will be held at the Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company, 402 7th Street, Glenwood Springs, on December 4, 2003 from 6:00-8:30 p.m.  Food and drinks will be provided and use of the billiard tables is free.  Spouses or significant others are welcome.  Please plan to attend this fun event.


3.         Nominations for 2004 9th JD Bar Association Officers.  We’re still seeking nominations for the 2004 Bar Association Secretary/Treasurer.  The current slate of 2004 officers is Eric Gross, president, and Katie Hays, vice-president.  If you or someone you know would like to contribute to the local Bar Association by becoming an officer, please let us know.  The election of officers will take place at the Bar Association’s annual meeting on November 20th.
