One of my favorite projects with the Oklahoma Bar Association is our annual OBA Solo and Small Firm Conference. It is a great opportunity for these lawyers to enjoy CLE targeted to their needs. There is also a good amount of networking and potential for referrals. Whenever possible, I've tried to help other bar association officials organize similar events and I've been a guest speaker at several of these conferences.
My friend Ross Kodner and I are co-chairing the first-ever National Solo and Small Firm Conference organized by the GP/Solo Division of the ABA. Ross has done a lengthy blog post about the event and so I will just refer you to that for more details. There should be more information posted on the division website soon. I certainly hope to see some of you there and, if you follow this blog, be sure and introduce yourself to me if you do attend.
My presentations include panels on 60 Top Practice Tips, Gadgets & Websites In 60 Minutes; My Billing: Powerful Techniques To Get Paid; Keeping Them Happy: The Secrets Of Client Satisfaction and Bloggers Speak: Why SSF Lawyers Should/Should Shouldn't Blog.
