Header Save the date: Elder Law Section Annual Meeting – June 17, 2011

The 2011 Annual Meeting of the Elder Law Section will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, June 17, 2011, at the offices of Estate & Elder Law Services (formerly MAO Legal Services), located at Monroe Village, 1900 Central Avenue NE, Suite 106, Minneapolis. Please note the meeting date and location changes. Rather than being held in conjunction with the Probate & Trust Conference at RiverCentre, as in recent years, this year's Annual Meeting will be held in conjunction with a regular June Governing Council Meeting at the regular Governing Council meeting location.

The agenda for the Annual Meeting includes reports on the year's activities and the election of Governing Council members and officers for the coming year. All section members are encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting and to participate in the annual election process. Please save the date and mark your calendars for the 2011 Annual Meeting!
