Solo in Colo Meet-Up, Round 2, on September 28

As we promised after our last meet-up, Solo in Colo is hosting another chance to kick back during happy hour and meet your fellow solo and small firm bloggers.

This time, we’re bringing in some expertise: Mark Beese, president of Leadership for Lawyers. Before starting his own company, Mark was an in-house marketer for professional services firms. He is also a blogger and will be at the meet-up to give guests some insight into using your blog as part of your marketing plan.

So when is this fabulous happy hour? We’ll get started at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, September 28, at the Blake Street Tavern in the Board Room. Please RSVP to me at

Also, if you’re interested in contributing to the Solo in Colo blog, this is a great opportunity for you to meet with the people who write for the blog now. We have some basic criteria here.

Hope to see you there!

Upcoming Solo/Small Firm Monthly Networking Meetings: October 2011

The Solo/Small Firm Section networking meetings are a great opportunity to connect with your peers, as well as a practice management and technology discussion forum. The meetings are open to all CBA members, not just members of the Solo/Small Firm Section, the sponsoring entity. Colorado Springs routinely offers CLE credits, although sometimes there is no formal agenda, and no RSVP is required to attend any of the meetings.  You are encouraged to think about and prepare questions or ideas to present to the group.  Don’t hesitate to e-mail a meeting coordinator to suggest a CLE topic and/or speaker!
