EMLF Annual Institute, June 21–23, 2015 at Omni's Amelia Island Plantation

Register now to enjoy the beauty of Amelia Island, catch up with colleagues and clients, and earn CLE credits for 33 separate topics at this year’s Annual Institute.  We created parallel oil and gas tracks, alongside the coal track, so we could offer as many presentations as possible.

When you make your travel plans, be sure to arrive in time for Sunday night’s reception and dinner, which starts at 5:30 p.m.  It’s about 30 miles from Jacksonville International Airport to Amelia Island. The brochure describes this as a reception only but there will be a sit-down dinner for all registrants and registered guests following the reception.

You can register online at www.emlf.org, where you will also find an updated attendee registration list.  We look forward to seeing everyone again in June.

Annual Institute Sponsor Opportunities

We have a variety of sponsor opportunities for the 36th Annual Institute, with a link from the home page describing the options at www.emlf.org

We hope you will considering sponsoring one of the social functions at the Annual Institute, which include receptions, Sunday night dinner, wine sponsors, and continental breakfast and breaks sponsors. This year we have added a canvas bag sponsorship that includes your firm’s name and logo imprinted on each bag, to be given to all registrants.  The sponsorships allow EMLF to fund social events without increasing the registration fees, and make attendance at the Annual Institute more affordable for many.

There is still space available for the April 20-21 program in Southpointe/Canonsburg, PA at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.  Register online via the EMLF website, or call Carolyn May at 859.231.0271 to register.  You can view the list of attendees via the EMLF home page at www.emlf.org
