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.
