*Over the last few years, MassNAELA leaders have noticed overlap between the Public Policy and Litigation committees, as the same issues were discussed in both committees’ meetings. Going forward, instead of two separate meetings, there will be one combined meeting where all interested members work on an issue together.

These Advocacy Committee Meetings will occur from 3:00 to 5:30. The first hour will be  a working meeting for the issue work groups, and the second part of the time will consist of reports from the various work groups. Comments and suggestions are welcome and may be brought to Patricia Keane Martin (pkmartin@sll-law.com) who is leading this initiative.

All Chapter members are invited to join the new Advocacy Committee meeting and join an issue work group.
