Upcoming Webinar Series

As the SLA grows and works toward its mission statement of being the leaders in the world of sports law, I want to remind you that we are so much more than a conference. For starters, we are fortunate enough to have had several of our proposed panels agree to present their respective topics via a webinar that will be available in June. You will still have the opportunity to get CLE, and while not as many hours as we provide at our conference, the cost will be significantly less. And, not to worry, Matt Mitten and Gabe Feldman will be doing their annual report on the world of sports law as one of the panels in that webinar. Moreover, for those that purchase the webinar package, there will be follow-up virtual outreach events over Zoom, to provide you with the opportunity to ask questions and engage with the panelists.

We provide these resources to enhance the profession and to share information and knowledge. But as with any service provider, it takes capital to make it all happen. In normal years, we get a big uptick in membership in conjunction with conference registration, but without a conference this year, we are behind on renewals. Obviously, the webinar sign-up will give you the opportunity to renew, but I am reaching out to those of you that have yet to renew and asking that you go on line and renew today.

Thank you for your continued support of the SLA and please stay safe!

SLA President
