This year we’re scheduling a series of regional meetings to generate topics for the Annual Institute, June 1-3 at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
If you have topics you would like to see addressed, bring your ideas to a planning meeting in your area and take advantage of the opportunity to brainstorm with other lawyers. Following each meeting, the hosts will submit the topics to EMLF so they can be considered by the Executive Committee next month, which selects the topics and speakers for the Annual Institute.
Just find the regional meeting you would like to attend, and send an email to the host so there will be a head count. Probably these meetings will take less than 2 hours. We’re generating topic ideas and speaker proposals at these meetings, with the final selection of topics and speakers to be made in February by the Executive Committee and Program Chair, David Morrison, Steptoe & Johnson, Bridgeport, WV; Coal Chair Eric Waller at Patriot Coal, Charleston, WV; and Oil and Gas Chair Joe Tarantelli, Chesapeake Energy, Oklahoma City, OK.
Again, if you would like to attend a meeting, just contact the individual host via email. All meeting times are Eastern Standard Time unless otherwise noted.
