2012 CBABCAnnual Branch Conference
San Francisco, California
November 23-25, 2012
This is the Conference everyone has been waiting for! Registration has already begun, so register today, because our Conference always sells out early. Here is a sneak preview of who we’ve got lined up this year.
Mingle with the Chiefs during Lunch Sessions, Ethics Sessions and Closing Dinner Reception – we have invited many distinguished members of the Federal and Provincial Courts.
This year’s Keynote Speaker is Bud Krogh – hear him speak on “Good People, Bad Choices, Integrity Lessons from the White House.” In this session, Krogh tells his story – from rising young presidential counsel, to his indictment and prison sentence, to redemption and the power of choosing what is right. He will introduce “The Integrity Zone,” a conceptual model for making decisions with integrity, which Krogh developed after years of White House experience, law practice, and extensive writing and lecturing. Don’t miss this engaging, thought-provoking and inspirational session.
