Convention magazine cover 2017

This is annual Convention week at the State Bar of Arizona. As always, a large selection of educational seminars (and less-educational activities) are packed into the three-day event held at the Westin La Paloma in Tucson.

More detail about the Convention is here.

As always, Arizona Attorney Magazine staff (yes, that’s me) will cover the annual event.

And as in the past, we will not print a once-a-day hard-copy “Convention Daily.” Instead, I’ll cover Convention news closer to real time, via the editor’s blog and social media. We will use multiple channels to communicate what’s going on. But the surest way to be sure you see everything is to follow me on Twitter. In Twitter, I’m @azatty. You can view all the evolving content here (or at http://twitter.com/azatty, to be specific). I will be tagging everything with the hashtag #azbarcon – so be sure to search for that.

And now we’re on Instagram at @statebarofarizona

Want to participate? Send me brief stories or story suggestions. Or if you have convention photos, we’d be glad to share them with readers.

And don’t forget to tweet from convention. Use the hashtag #azbarcon.

Questions or suggestions? Reach me, the Editor, Tim Eigo, on-site at the Westin, at 602-908-6991 or via arizona.attorney@azbar.org.

And always feel free to stroll up and say hello. I’ll be hiking all over the hotel to cover the goings-on. Or you may catch me at the Arizona Attorney table in the Exhibitor area. If you miss me there, leave your card or a note.

By now, you’ve received your State Bar Convention brochure. No? It’s also available online here.

I’ll be on-site in Tucson for the entire event, from Tuesday through Friday, June 10-13. If you can make it, look for me strolling among seminars and special events. But if you can’t attend, tell me which events or seminars you’d like me to cover—live and in-person. Tell me what you’re interested in, and I’ll try to cover it in my Convention Daily updates. Follow all of the updates and links to stories through Twitter. And follow the action via the Convention hashtag: #azbarcon

In the coming week, I’ll share some previews of the seminars that will be presented at Convention. Maybe that will spur your interest even more.

So, at long last, this is annual Convention week at the State Bar of Arizona. A wide selection of education seminars and just-plain-fun activities are packed into the three-day event held in Tucson at the Westin La Paloma this year.

Last year, I rolled the dice and decided that Arizona Attorney Magazine should cover the convention activities far more than we had in the past. While we had no interest in—or budget for—a printed “Convention Daily,” technology provided another possibility.

So in 2010, I provided coverage via our variety of electronic channels. And this year I’ll do it again. This week, the Convention Daily will come your way electronically.

Most stories about the convention will be posted on the AZ Attorney blog (right here—subscribe so you don’t miss anything). But I’ll also post content on our Facebook page and via Twitter. And I expect to use our brand-new online News Center, too.

Want to participate? Send me brief stories or story suggestions. Or if you have convention photos, we’d be glad to share them with readers.

And don’t forget to tweet from convention. Use the hashtag #azbarcon.

So read about this year’s State Bar Convention—or post your own material. Questions or suggestions? Reach the Editor, Tim Eigo, at 602-908-6991.

Finally, if you’re at the event, feel free to stroll up and say hello. I’ll be hiking all over the Westin La Paloma property to cover the goings-on. Or you may catch me at the Arizona Attorney table in the Exhibitor area. If you miss me there, leave your card or a note.

I may even leave a box soliciting story ideas or seeking authors. And I am considering drawing a card or two at the end of Convention to award a great gift.

See you in the Old Pueblo.
