In-Person CLEs Let You Network As You Learn!
In-Person CLEs State-by-State

In planning your free CLE calendar for next year, consider your role in the process. Do you take in-person CLEs passively, or do you actively prepare by considering:
  • What do I want to get from this program?
  • Who am I likely to meet there?
  • What impression am I likely to give them of me, my practice, and how we might work together?
  • How can I maximize my use of my time at the CLE with prior preparation both for the formal education and the informal networking?
These are not trick questions; they are the same preparation you would make for any any potential client meeting or networking opportunity. Invest a few minutes of preparation so that when a door opens, you're ready to walk through! 

Need More By Year-End?
As the year winds down, many professionals face a need to earn credit quickly at little cost. If this is your situation, email the editor and I'll see if I can locate something helpful. If you are able to use online recordings, you should be able to get much of your need satisfied.
