In July, we held our annual convention at the beautiful Suncadia Resort.  This was our first convention in two years; earlier conventions were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our goal was to break the muscle memory of staying home by throwing a fantastic get-together.  In the end, all expectations were exceeded:

We had the highest turnout in WDTL convention history.

We honored our past WDTL presidents with a special gathering.  In all, 18 past presidents attended the convention.

By aiming to deliver the best programming in convention history, we offered powerhouse panels which discussed some of the most pressing issues impacting our profession.  While it is tough to select a single highlight, the Gender Equity panel consisting of four current and former judges was widely accepted as being top-notch.

In addition to our fantastic convention, our membership numbers are at an all-time high.  There is certainly strength in numbers.  Your involvement, and your encouraging of colleagues to join, will only further our stature in the legal community while offering more educational and networking opportunities in the future.
