Inaugural PTAB Bar Association Conference Coming to DC
Next week brings the now Sold Out, Inaugural PTAB Bar Conference. The PTAB Bar was founded to help establish best practices for this unique forum, foster communication among stakeholders and the PTAB, and aid practitioners in staying abreast of rule making, procedure and PTAB jurisprudential evolution. The Inaugural Conference of the PTAB Bar Association will be held March 1-3rd at the Ritz Carlton in Washington D.C. (here) The 3-day program offers a boot-camp for new practitioners on Wednesday March 1, followed by a full day program on Thursday, March 2nd, and a half day program on Friday, March 3rd.
Join the Organization to keep abreast of future event, meetings, practice updates and CLE.
