Dear Inn Member:

If you are a returning member, you are well aware of the benefits and privileges of Inn membership. If you are new to the Inn, you will not find a finer group of professionals with whom to associate.  Great programs and discussions on matters of ethics, skills and professionalism, camaraderie, MCLE credit, and mentoring are just a few of the rewards of Inn membership.

Please take a few minutes to review our Inn policies and meeting dates.  I encourage you to put site under "favorites" on your computer and visit it often.  We ask that you take special care regarding the Inn directory and group e-mail addresses. These contain confidential information and are not to be used except for conducting Inn business.  I am confident you will respect the privacy of your fellow members.

The benefit you derive will depend on your involvement and commitment to each other and to the Inn.
