The mailing also included the Society's newsletter which featured our local chapter 13 Trustee C. Kenneth Still. If you are interested in the Society, you may contact Mr. Ferguson at Don_Ferguson@tned.uscourts.gov.
The Association is looking for ways to serve its members. If you have ideas for programs, events or CLE, please send us your suggestions.
The association provides tours of the federal courthouse as part of its community outreach program. We are looking for new tour guides to join this committee. The time commitment involved would only be for an orientation session and about three hours to conduct the tour. We are looking to have a pool of trained attorneys so that no one would have to do more that a couple of tours during the school year. Please contact the Chapter if you are interested in participating.
