September Bar Meeting 9/16; Justice Baker & Judge Grady to speak

The September meeting of the Linn County Bar Association will be held Thursday, September 16, 2010, from 12 – 1 p.m.   at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art on Third Avenue SE across from Greene Square Park   The meeting room is located on the third floor. Parking is available behind the building on the Second Avenue side.   The speakers  will be   Justice David Baker of the Iowa Supreme Court and Chief Judge Patrick Grady of the 6th Judicial District.   Lunch will be catered by Biaggi‘s.   The cost is $7.  

 RSVPs are required only if you plan to attend.     Rebekah Isbell, assistant to LCBA Attendance Chair Corinne R. Butkowski, will send all LCBA members a RSVP-request email in early September.   Please respond to Rebekah’s email by 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15, 2010.    

PLEASE make sure to RSVP if you are attending so that we order sufficient food from the caterer.    Also, if you DO  RSVP but discover last minute you cannot attend, please try to send one of your colleagues in your place.    We have had trouble ordering the correct quantity of food    for our meetings  because members often fail to RSVP and then show up for the meeting, or RSVP but do not attend.   Unfortunately, the number of members  in these two categories often invariably do not even out, resulting in us running out of food sometimes  (which isn’t fair to those in attendance) or ordering too much food thereby wasting both food and bar association money.
