Join us for Solos Moving Forward Together, a new conference event created by the Solo & Small Firm sections of MSBA, HCBA, RCBA and MWL along with the MSBA Practice Management & Marketing and Greater Minnesota Practice Sections! We’ve put our heads together to find great presenters on topics our members care about — and we’ve added workshops, short talks, and opportunities to socialize over food and beverages.
Come to learn/discuss, stay for the excellent company of your fellow solos & smalls, and leave with a few new friendships. Remember, you’re not in this alone.
CLE credits and free parking included. Hope to see you there!
