2021 Virtual Annual Meeting

September 15-17, 2021


Host: Billie LM Addleman

Dear Colleagues:

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the Officers, Commissioners and staff of the Wyoming State Bar, to invite you to join us in Cheyenne for the Wyoming State Bar’s Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference. The Annual Meeting will take place September 14 - 17, 2021, at Little America Hotel & Resort, and all CLE programming will also be available virtually. In the spirit of the theme for this year’s Annual Meeting, “Brighter Days Ahead,” registration rates have been drastically reduced. I hope all of our members will seize this opportunity to reconnect with colleagues.

We will kick off this year’s Annual Meeting at the Daddy of ‘em All. Please join us on Tuesday evening for the Welcome Reception at the new Cheyenne Frontier Days Event Center, overlooking the historic rodeo arena, only a stone’s throw from the newly dedicated Chris Ledoux statue. You will not want to miss this one-of-a-kind venue and event.

The Continuing Legal Education Committee, chaired by Kara Ellsbury, has prepared an exciting line-up of programs for every practice area and practitioner. Throughout the meeting, we will have a diverse selection of break-out sessions along with interesting plenary sessions on important topics. Wednesday’s plenary session will be “Digital Addiction: How to Disconnect in a Hyperconnected World to Increase Your Well-Being” by Danielle Hall. On Thursday, Kevin Thompson will present “How to Fight for the Right Cause in the Wrong Place.” That will be followed on Friday by “Persuasive Leadership Messaging: A Creative Approach for Developing Messages that Resonate and Inspire” presented by David Mann.

On Thursday night, we have a special keynote speaker for the Annual Banquet. United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil M. Gorsuch will help us recognize our 50-year and 60-year members during the Annual Banquet, and then engage in a fireside discussion on a variety of legal and historical issues. This is a great opportunity and we are very excited to have Justice Gorsuch join us.

Our Annual Meeting would not be complete without a little fun. This year, Scott Ortiz and Richard Mincer co-chair the WSB Tee Party: Chaos for a Cause, a Complete and Putter Madness Golf Tourney and Equal Justice Wyoming Foundation Fundraiser at Little America’s executive course. Devon O’Connell will host the always-popular Yoga for Lawyers and Torey Racines is chairing our Race Judicata on Thursday morning. So, please pack your clubs, running shoes, yoga mat, and sign up while space is still available.

As always, the most rewarding part of Annual Meeting is reconnecting with friends and classmates and developing new friendships. After a year of social distancing and Zoom and Teams meetings, we look forward to actually seeing each other in person and reconnecting. While our Annual Meeting will be available virtually, we hope you will make your way to Cheyenne to celebrate another wonderful year in the Wyoming Bar. See you soon!

Sponsor/Exhibitor Files:

The Wyoming State Bar is proud to host the 2021 Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference at the beautiful Little America Hotel & Resort in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and we hope you will join us!

Our event offers you a unique opportunity to market your products and/or services either through sponsorships, exhibitor booths or both! See the attached information. We value the relationship that we have with sponsors and exhibitors and hope you will too.

Since requests have traditionally exceeded the supply of available exhibit spaces, we encourage you to sign up today for the 2021 Annual Meeting. The Wyoming State Bar’s largest event, the Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for our members to learn about practice-related products and services, socialize with their colleagues and fulfill their Continuing Legal Education (CLE) requirements.

Exhibitor space is available in a comfortable and high-visibility pre-function area outside the Annual Meeting seminar rooms. Located immediately in front of, and surrounding, the entrances to most Annual Meeting seminar rooms, and serving as the site for all beverage breaks, these are excellent locations for attracting attendee attention.

For 2021, each space costs $750.00. This fee includes a draped six-foot table, two chairs and attendance for all meals, including: Tuesday's Welcome Reception at the new Cheyenne Frontier Days Events Center, Wednesday’s Judicial Luncheon and evening cocktail reception, Thursday’s Pro Bono Luncheon and evening cocktail party and Annual Banquet, and Friday’s Annual Business Meeting Luncheon.

We ask for your prompt response since space is limited, and previous exhibitors receive preference. To ensure your application is properly processed, you must complete and return the Exhibitor Registration Form no later than August 25, 2021.

We hope to see you in Cheyenne!
