ACC Dallas-Fort Worth Hosts 
Ethics CLE and Golf/Spa Event

A lways on the short list of top programs, the Ethics CLE and Golf/Spa event was once again a packed house at the ACC Dallas-Fort Worth Annual Meeting. Held on September 16 at the Four Seasons Resort and Spa in Las Colinas. This premiere event combined relevant, meaningful education and casual fun with record attendance, including 250 members and sponsors. The day began with officer elections and two hours of Ethics CLE in the morning sessions presented by our event sponsors Baker & McKenzie LLP and Counsel on Call.

Following a networking lunch, the afternoon saw members take full ad- vantage of the beautiful resort. While some enjoyed well-deserved relaxation at the Four Seasons world-class spa or PGA golf course, others enjoyed their first aerial yoga class at the fitness cetter or relaxed by the pool. The internet café in the lobby lounge also provided members a place to check their emails, socialize, and network.

The evening reception closed the day with live jazz music, raffle prizes, and the recognition of the two schol- arship winners of the Annual Larry Margolies Fellowship Program. The Margolies program, named after aformer board member who was active in pro bono efforts, is an important part of the chapter's pro bono vision, enhancing a culture of providingpro bono legal help at the student level through summer internships. This year's winners of the US$3,500 scholarships are Taylor Kara and Mary Sommers, both students at SMU Dedman School of Law.
