AAML President Susan Myres and the Executive Committee are excited to welcome Fellows to our first ever
AMERICAN ACADEMY OF MATRIMONIAL LAWYERS
VIRTUAL ANNUAL MEETING
The schedule will look similar to what you have come to expect with exceptional CLE, business meetings, and opportunities to gather with Fellows from all over the country. If you are new to the Academy or have never ventured to Chicago to attend in person,
this year you have the opportunity to see what the meeting offers from the comfort of your own office or home. If you have a group that meets at the Annual and would like us to reserve a “room” for you, please contact Jill Peña at email@example.com, and she will be sure to get it scheduled!
Registration will open September 14th.
We look forward to virtually “seeing” you in November!
