2011 Mid-Year Conference & Moot Court Competition
2011 HNBA MID-YEAR AND SECOND ANNUAL CORPORATE COUNSEL CONFERENCE
16TH ANNUAL UVALDO HERRERA NATIONAL MOOT COURT COMPETITION
MARCH 9-12, 2011
NEW ORLEANS, LOUSIANA
Dear HNBA Members and Supporters,
We want to thank the attendees, distinguished speakers, and sponsors of the HNBA 2011 Corporate Counsel Conference for having made this program possible. The second corporate counsel conference held in our bar association’s near 40-year history, by all indications, was incredibly successful.
Together, we have strengthened the relationships between in-house counsel and HNBA members, which will hopefully result in increased business opportunities for HNBA members as their expertise on cutting-edge legal issues was showcased in a forum created with in-house counsel in mind. We were fortunate to have General Counsel from some of Corporate America’s largest legal departments participate as speakers.
In addition, the Conference featured a “Corporate Connection Mixer”, which allowed focused, intimate networking opportunities that afforded corporate and public agency counsel the chance to meet HNBA members and identify them as possible outside counsel for future legal work. A big “thank you” to Conference Co-Chairs Elia Diaz-Yaeger and Martha Castillo for leading the planning efforts of such a great HNBA event.
The feedback received from both in-house counsel and HNBA members who joined us for the Conference has been incredibly positive, and many look forward to the next Corporate Counsel Conference! It is our sincere hope that you will join us in future years so that we can collectively build upon the foundation laid by the HNBA over the last two years.
