Save the Date for Bench-Bar and Annual Conference 2010


The Philadelphia Bar Association’s popular Bench-Bar and Annual Conference is returning in 2010, moving back to The Borgata in Atlantic City, N.J. for the weekend of Oct. 15 and 16.

Chancellor Scott F. Cooper has tapped Vice Chancellor John E. Savoth and Board of Governors Vice Chair Regina M. Foley to chair the conference.

“I am thrilled about the conference returning to The Borgata. We just completed the Bar’s Leadership Retreat at The Borgata and it is a top-tier venue. I think our attendees will be amazed at the facilities and the level of service. It is the perfect location for a conference of this caliber,” Cooper said.

The Association’s Bench-Bar Conference traditionally features a large selection of continuing legal education seminars for practitioners in a variety of specialty areas. There is always ample opportunity for attorneys to mingle and network with their colleagues and members of the bench.

The Borgata last hosted the Bench-Bar Conference in 2004. Since then, the event has been held at the Tropicana, Bally’s and Harrah’s.
