To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel:

Our upcoming programs in Colorado offer fabulous venues for in-house counsel to enhance their knowledge, skills, and networks. A track especially tailored for in-house counsel is being featured at the 5th Annual Business Law Institute on October 28-30 at the beautiful Cheyenne Mountain Resort. Co-hosted by our Chapter and the Colorado Bar Association's Business Law Section, programming focuses on ethical issues in the wake of Sarbanes-Oxley, antitrust fundamentals, corporate tax issues, drafting licensing agreements, and other topics that every business law practitioner needs to know. Heading the slate of renowned speakers is Terry Cuff, who chairs the Tax Department in the Los Angeles office of Loeb & Loeb LLP. Information about the other speakers, fees, and logistics are available by calling the Colorado Bar Association at (303) 860-0608.

Another "must mark" on the calendar for in-house counsel in Colorado is our Ski Train and Ethics program on December 18 at the fabulous Winter Park Resort. For more information about this incredible and fun way to wrap up your CLE ethics credits for the year, contact our chapter administrator, Maita Lester, at (303) 831-4133 or maita@amanagementgroup.com.

You can also contact Maita for information about our upcoming monthly luncheon programs. We vary the locations in downtown Denver, Boulder County, and the Englewood/Littleton areas, as well as our topics, to meet the broad spectrum of our members' needs. Our luncheon program on October 20 features an American Arbitration Panel. On November 17, the topic will be on workplace violence.

I want to thank all our dedicated volunteers who help to make these programs a success. I'd also like to extend my deep gratitude to Jon Bourne, our chapter's immediate past president. His dedication, hard work, and wisdom serve as a role model as I follow in his difficult-to-fill footsteps. Jon has recently left in-house practice to serve as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Colorado. Along with the many, many others who have benefited from his leadership, I wish Jon the very best in his new endeavors.
