HLERK will be active at the Joint Conference. HLERK clients have already received their invitation to a special reception at the Chicago Cultural Center the Friday evening of the Conference.

Jeff Goelitz
 and Michelle Todd will kick of the Conference with a full day workshop on Friday, November 22 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. They are reprising their school board professional development leadership training and Performance Evaluation Review Act training. Join Steven Richart on Saturday, November 23, at the Swissotel, Vevey 1&2 at 12:30, as he addresses the conference on OMA’s Grey Areas regarding issues concerning the practical implementation of the Open Meetings Act. And, as always, finish the conference with a group of HLERK early risers on Sunday, November 24 at our annual Stump the Lawyer (Coffee and Conversation) hosted by Heather Brickman, Stan Eisenhammer, and Kaitlin Atlas at 8:30 at the Hyatt Hotel, Columbus Room I/J East Tower. Hit them with your hardest questions; nothing is off limits.
