Important Note: This program is Paper-Free! The LSBA is working on ways to reduce the amount of paper we use at seminars and symposia. This is an effort both to be responsible toward our environment and to increase the quality and timeliness of the resources provided through this learning experience. Electronic program materials are accessible via a link where attendees can download/save OR download/print the seminar materials. The link will be sent to the email address of record you provided to the LSBA, prior to the seminar. We suggest you print the materials in advance and bring them with you. If you choose to review the materials from your laptop, we strongly suggest you charge your laptop battery, as electrical outlets may be limited. Internet access will not be available in the meeting room.

A printed manual can be purchased for an additional $40 and seminar materials on a flash drive can be purchased for $25. Be sure to make your selection by checking the appropriate box on the Registration Form.
