Annual Meeting & Dinner – May 16, 2016

The Business Law Section will hold its Annual Meeting on Monday, May 16, 2016 at Belle & James (700 E. Main Street). The meeting will feature cocktails at 5:30 p.m., a short business meeting at 6:30 to elect officers for the 2016-2017 bar year; a seated dinner at 6:45 p.m.; followed by an exciting presentation by Jefferson D. Reynolds of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality on an incredible expedition to Mount Everest. The mountains examine our courage and fears – there are always moments of self-doubt.  Jeff will challenge you as lawyers and individuals to meaningfully connect with what inspires us most.

Cost to attend is $60 for section members and guests. The reservation deadline is Thursday, May 12, 2016. There will be no refunds after this date.
