October 24 CCBA Lunchtime CLE meeting & Pro-Bono Service Award – sign-up by October 21

On Thursday, October 24, 2019, the CCBA Board is sponsoring its next Lunchtime CLE meeting at the Regent Ballroom in Savoy (1406 Regency Drive West, Savoy: www.regentballroom.com ).  For the when-does-Illini-basketball-start price of $17.00, you will receive lunch and 1 hour of CLE credit.  Lunch will commence at 11:30 a.m. and the CLE program at 12:00 p.m.  The topic is, “Assisting Elderly Clients & Their Families”; the speakers will be Catherine Barbercheck, Barbercheck & Associates, PC, and Chad S. Beckett, Beckett Law Office; moderator will be Susan Zielke, Land of Lincoln Legal Aid.  In addition, at the Meeting, the Sixth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee will be presenting its annual Community Legal Services Awards at 11:45 a.m.  (Attached please find the October 24 Meeting Flyer.)

The panel discussion will cover several issues related to this topic including Medicaid, long-term care planning, estate planning, and special needs trusts. Speakers will provide examples of client situations and frequently encountered issues working with an elder client population. Interested attendees who attend the CLE will then be provided with information on how to get connected with pro bono matters in this area.

So that the CCBA may know how many persons to plan for, please RSVP by Monday, October 21 to Alyx Parker at aparker@meyercapel.com.  Please bring your payment with you to the Lunchtime CLE.  Checks should be made out to the CCBA.  If you desire a vegetarian plate or have some other dietary restriction, please note that in your RSVP.  Because the Regent Ballroom charges the CCBA for the number of RSVPs, if you have provided your RSVP but are unable to attend, the CCBA will need 48 hours’ notice of the cancellation prior to the Lunchtime CLE meeting.
