2017 Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference

Dear Wyoming State Bar Colleagues:
On behalf of the Officers, Commissioners and staff of the Wyoming State Bar, it is my privilege to invite you to join your colleagues for the Wyoming State Bar’s 2017 Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference, to be held September 12-15, 2017, at Little America Hotel and Resort in Cheyenne.
Sometimes our meetings are themed; sometimes they are more wide-ranging affairs. While this year’s is more of the latter, if there is a focus it would be communication, the core of our profession. All types of communication though-to the courts, the juries, our clients, our markets, our competition and, of course, one another. How and how well we communicate have never been as important as now.
To help us in Cheyenne we’ve assembled an impressive list of presenters to bring us up to date on all things related to the practice of law in Wyoming and more. We’ve also brought back our plenary sessions: Wednesday morning will find us with Tanis Roeder about effective communication and presentations, while our Thursday afternoon sessions address the law’s competition against online legal services and marketing.
And we can’t overlook our fortune at being able to entice Wyoming’s (and NBC’s) own Pete Williams as our keynote speaker on Thursday night, a true master-communicator.
Finally, in a small bar like ours it’s even more important that we come together and remind ourselves of the values we all share. To see our friends from both the Bench and the Bar, our opponents and allies, share our thoughts and ideas, and make new memories. I know you’ll find your time in Cheyenne to be enjoyable, meaningful and of benefit to you in the future. I look forward to seeing you at this year’s 2017 Annual Meeting!

2017 Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference - Sponsor & Exhibitor Information
The Wyoming State Bar is proud to host the 2017 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 2017 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 2017, each space costs $750.00. This fee includes a draped six-foot table, two chairs and attendance for all meals, including: Wednesday’s Judicial Luncheon and Welcome Reception, Thursday’s Luncheon, 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 15, 2017.
We hope to see you in Cheyenne!
