2020 has certainly been...different...but we are still having a Fall CLE and Annual Meeting!

This year's program, Zooming Your Practice Forward, will be VIRTUAL, via Zoom Webinar. Beginning at 9:00 a.m., the program will be comprised of 4 1-hour segments, (1 hour being Ethics, MCLE credit pending), with a 15 minute break between the second and third hours.

We will definitely miss seeing everyone in person, but at least we can still log on and learn together online! As always, we have a great lineup of speakers and presentations, so you won't want to miss out. Attendees will be able to submit questions throughout the presentations via the chat box and Q&A features in Zoom, so we hope you will actively participate and engage with the speakers and with your VACDL colleagues.
