CALL Continuing Education Committee 2019-2020 Annual Report

The Continuing Education Committee sponsored three successful presentations this year past. They were:

  • Nailing Your AMPC Proposal – Tips from the Trenches (webinar, September 17th, 2019)
  • The Occasional Intellectual Property Law Researcher (webinar, December 5th, 2019)
  • What’s New and Improved in Free and Low-cost Legal Research (May 21st, 2020)

 All of these programs were recorded and available on the CALL website. We would like to thank all our wonderful CALL volunteer speakers–Shari Berkowicz Duff, Diana Koppang, Todd Hillmer, and Nan Norton–for their assistance in making these programs a success.

As always, our programs were driven by our fabulous volunteer committee members.  They were: co-chairs Tom Keefe and Debbie Ginsburg, Julie Pabarja, Simone Srinivasin, and Lisa Winkler. The co-chairs would like to thank all the volunteer members for their commitment and hard work helping us put together good education programs this year.

We had the benefit this year of using our new Zoom webinar platform for the first time. Although there was a learning curve with Zoom, we think it will serve us well as a platform in the future.

The committee stayed well within its budget.  Our only expense was a speaker fee for Carole Levitt of Internet for Lawyers for her participation in the What’s New and Improved in Free and Low-cost Legal Research webinar.

That is all.
