Time is running out to reserve your spot at the GTLA Political & Legislative Summit! The 2014 General Election and the 2015 Legislative Session of the Georgia General Assembly are just around the corner, and you're invited to join GTLA's top-notch legislative and political team for an afternoon of advocacy training, can't-miss speakers and unparalleled insight from some of our state's best political, legislative and media minds. 

However, there is an even more important reason to join us at the Summit: We need your help! 

As members of the plaintiffs’ trial bar, you are uniquely knowledgeable about the potential effects that even the most seemingly-benign changes to the code – not to mention significant changes to the rules of discovery, seatbelt admissibility and many others – can have on your clients’ rights and your practices. That is why our lobbying team will be on hand all afternoon to listen and learn from your expertise as trial lawyers. We will be working on more than one-dozen legislative initiatives in January, and this is a vital opportunity for you to help our team craft GTLA’s messaging, strategy and position on these issues and so many others. 

The 2014 Political & Legislative Summit will be held next Wednesday, Oct. 22 at the State Bar of Georgia. This is a MEMBERS-ONLY event. REGISTER HERE
