Through CTLA's Public Relations committee we have partnered with EndDD.org to give distracted driving presentations to high schools and community groups across our state.
On March 12th at 12:30 pm, Joel Feldman will be joining us in Hartford to lend his support and to run a training session for all CTLA members.
We need your help. Presentations have begun in Connecticut and we need more members to give presentations in their communities. I am asking you all to be part of the solution by speaking locally, and helping to save lives by raising awareness on the dangers of distracted driving.
Help us to continue the tradition of giving back! Over the past 3 years members of CTLA along with the support of friends and local businesses, have helped raise over $135,000 to benefit Habitat for Humanity, the Sandy Hook Workers Assistance Fund and the Newtown Memorial Fund. This year we are pleased to be proud supporters of Wounded Warrior Project.
Join us on May 8th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm for this popular CTLA Benefit Event featuring delicious food, open bar, and lots of fun!
CTLA's Fall Membership Dinner took place on October 23 at the New Haven Lawn Club. The evening started with a cocktail reception sponsored by Creative Capital, followed by a dinner featuring five CTLA members who discussed the topic Recent Verdicts. They shared how they used social media, technology, creative tactics and interesting angles to achieve the verdicts they did.
On September 24th, the Women's Caucus was delighted to welcome Judge Christine Keller, Judge Maureen Murphy and Judge Hope Seeley to the Annual Fall Dinner.
While socializing with colleagues and enjoying cocktails and dinner overlooking the Connecticut shoreline at the lovely renovated Madison Beach Hotel, attendees were able to gain insight and perspective from three distinguished members of the bench. The panel shared their experiences, lessons learned, knowledge and wisdom.
