City/County Attorneys Meet September 13

The annual City/County Attorney Institute is not quite as much fun as getting continuing legal education credits while cruising, but it is its own kind of fun. It is like a family reunion because many local government lawyers have been dedicated public servants for many years.

This year the annual get together will be held September 13th and 14th at the Georgia Continuing Education Center in Athens, Georgia. I hope to see you there.

City and County Attorneys Gather in Athens

City and County Attorneys will gather in Athens, Georgia September 8, 2011, for the 58th Institute for City and County Attorneys. The two-day program includes a broad array of subjects of interest to city and county attorneys.

The Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) and the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) will update participants on recent laws passed by the legislature. The program also includes updates on emerging trends and provides participants with an opportunity to network with colleagues from around the state.

The Thursday night reception is always a big hit because it provides an opportunity to seek informal advice from colleagues in a relaxed setting. I look forward to seeing you there.
