/Greetings practitioners!


This first year has been flying by, and I feel remiss in not having yet scheduled a TIPS meeting.  That said, my preference is for a less formal, more social hour (or two) where we can meet, discuss Chapter 13, or simply re-connect.  So, I’m hoping you can make it to the Harmon on August 25, from 4:00 to 6:00.  Drop in, have a snack, chat, etc.  I will provide the food.  Please also invite your staff, as I will be inviting mine.


To help in planning the food order, please RSVP to Tracy by August 18. 


Looking forward to seeing you all,


Michael G. Malaier
