Texas Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (TLCL), a volunteer organization associated with the State Bar of Texas Lawyers’ Assistance Program (TLAP), helps those in the legal profession who are experiencing difficulties because of alcohol and/or substance abuse, depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. As part of this effort, TLCL is hosting its 23rd Annual Convention on June 1 – 3, 2012, at the Crowne Plaza Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio.
Opportunities for socializing will be plentiful! The event starts on Friday evening with a speaker and ice cream social. Saturday will begin with a welcome from State Bar President, Bob Black, followed by presentations (CLE credit for up to eight hours is pending) and an evening banquet and keynote speaker. A highlight of the dinner is the presentation of the Ralph Mock Award to a TLCL member who exemplifies the mission of the TLCL program. The weekend’s events will conclude with a brunch. Registration is $220 and early bird room rates are $109 per night. Scholarships are available to those who cannot pay the registration fee and hotel cost.
Registration forms can be found at www.texasbar.com/tlap. For more information, please contact TLAP staff, Cameron Vann or Bree Buchanan, at 1-800-343-8527.
