State Bar of Wisconsin 2020 Annual Meeting & Conference Canceled

After careful consideration, the State Bar of Wisconsin has canceled the 2020 Annual Meeting & Conference.

We hoped that by early June, it would be possible for us to gather at one of our favorite annual events. However, with an understanding of the ongoing personal, professional, and financial challenges all of us are facing, combined with a commitment to protecting the health and safety of our members, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, and staff – we realized that forging ahead with the 2020 AMC wasn’t possible. With those factors in mind, we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 AMC.

Some good news? Our goal is to deliver much of the content of the CLE sessions that were planned at the 2020 AMC through alternative channels, such as individual webinars. Watch your inbox for more information as we solidify plans.

Make plans for next year! The world-class AMC will be back better than ever at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells, June 10 & 11, 2021. We look forward to overcoming this crisis and being able to celebrate safely with all of you, in person, next year.

    Ellie Krug

    At the age of fifty-two, Ellen (Ellie) Krug (pronounced “Kroog”) transitioned from male to female while living in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Although not at all easy, transitioning genders gave Ellie the opportunity for a “do-over” in life, which has included working to make the world fairer and more inclusive for all humans, particularly those considered “Other.”

    With over 100 civil trials to her credit, Ellie was the first Iowa lawyer to ever transition genders and one of the few attorneys nationally to try jury cases in separate genders. She later relocated to the Twin Cities where she served as the founding executive director of a legal nonprofit that was conferred an American Bar Association award for innovatively increasing legal access.

    The author of Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and Gender Change (2013), Ellie has presented on diversity and inclusion to governmental entities, court systems, Fortune 100 companies, law firms, nonprofits, and colleges/universities on 800+ occasions. A hopeless idealist, Ellie has presented her human inclusivity training, “Gray Area Thinking®” across North America. In 2016, Advocate Magazine named Ellie one of “25 Legal Advocates Fighting for Trans Rights.” She is a monthly columnist for Lavender Magazine and pens a widely-circulated monthly e-newsletter, The Ripple, that reaches 9000 readers. Ellie views herself as an “Inclusionist” and founded an inclusion-oriented consulting and training company, Human Inspiration Works, LLC, in 2016.

    In 2019, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal conferred its 2019 Business of Pride Career Achievement Award to Ellie and her company, Human Inspiration Works, LLC. In that same year, OutFront Minnesota, the state’s largest LGBTQ advocacy organization, conferred Ellie its 2019 Legacy Award.​​
