                                                      Ya’ll come October 5-8, Conrad Hotel (reservation phone number 1-312-645-1500).
                                            Tell ‘em you’re with NAFUSA. It’ll help. Important, you won’t have to take sides on anything, no
                                            voting, but a lobbyist might sneak up on ya. Hard to spot.
                                                      Everything is in place. CLE program and dinner speaker, fine hotel, centrally located.
                                            Telling you there’s a Nordstrom next door is a double edged sword. Lots of wonderful dinning
                                            opportunities, same sword problem. Cruising the Chicago waterways with a pizza lunch.
                                                      We are excited to announce the acceptance of our invitation to speak at our Chicago
                                            Conference by the US Attorney for Northern Illinois, the Honorable Patrick Fitzgerald. Mr. Fitz-
                                            gerald is also a member of the President’s Corporate Fraud Task Force. In December 2003, he
        Patrick Fitzgerald                  was named Special Council to investigate the alleged disclosure of the identity of a purported
                                            employee of the Central Intelligence Agency. Clearly a man with a busy schedule and we’re so
                                            lucky to have him.
President                                             After due deliberation and the careful review of our 18 nominees (the most ever), the
