JOIN US FOR  THE ANNUAL ASMAC FALL CONFERENCE!

The Fall Conference provides approximately 10 continuing legal education credits (Illinois MCLE Board). Each day begins with a full breakfast, 3 to 4 continuing education sessions, roundtable discussions and afternoon group activities in the afternoon. The conference is noted for being casual with ample time and opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas and take a deeper dive into information presented in formal sessions.
