The Conference provided attendees with education and valuable insights presented by members of the legislature, judiciary, and other governmental representatives on how to prepare oneself for an elected or appointed position. The Conference also included a panel of attorneys in general counsel positions providing the perspective of the “in house” attorney and advice for “outside counsel” working with corporate counsel and a panel of experienced attorneys presenting on leadership in various contexts.
