Attention Executive Directors: Don’t forget to register for the 2018 CSE Retreat in Chicago, and if you’re a NEW Executive Director, sign-up for the New ED Bootcamp too!
The 2018 CSE Retreat will take place March 13-14 at the Chicago Marriott Downtown and you won’t want to miss it. This year’s meeting theme is “Stepping up to the Bar” – Leading Through Eruptive and Positively Disruptive Change, and a program preview of the sessions offered is available here. Along with the sessions regularly provided during the CSE Retreat, the Retreat features a track specifically designed for small bar associations as well as special registration pricing for smaller bar associations with less than 1,000 members. In addition, there will be a New Executive Director Bootcamp before the Retreat at the same location on Tuesday, March 13, starting at 1 pm. During the Bootcamp, new bar executives will join an open discussion about how to be an effective bar association executive. Spots are expected to fill quickly for both the CSE Retreat and the Bootcamp, so don’t wait to register. Bootcamp details and sign-up are available here (by February 23), and follow this link to register to attend the 2018 CSE Retreat.
