Did you know the State Bar of Texas is the second largest active-member state bar in the United States? SBOT has been around since 1939, when the State Bar Act was adopted by Texas state legislature, and there are currently more than 102,000 active members. Hopefully for the sake of the city of Houston not all those members will be gathering for SBOT’s Annual Meeting, but the conference still attracts thousands each year.
Beginning tomorrow, the 2018 Annual Meeting will feature two days of insightful sessions, CLE programming, and extensive networking opportunities. This year the keynote speakers include Joseph Crespino, Jim McIngvale, and Douglas Brinkley, and Amy Starnes has a great post about what to expect from their keynotes.
