Summer update

Since my last blog both the private client and conveyancing forums have met and discussed topical issues in their area.

The Honorary Secretary and I attended the Combined Sussex Law Societies meeting in Lewes on 27th June.  It was an opportunity to follow up on the previous meeting.  It is the turn of Chichester to chair next time.

The Secretary and I attended the Presidents and Secretaries conference on 9th and 10th May which was a great opportunity to meet fellow Presidents and Secretaries from other local law societies and compare notes.  Almost 60 local law societies were represented and the conference focused on topics ranging from access to justice to communication between the national and local societies.  Jo and I gathered lots of information and ideas of how to progress the society and make improvements for our members.

The Society hosted its Summer Social drinks on 19th June 2014 and it was very well attended.  This year the event was held at Marco’s in the sunshine.  Thank you for Dominic for organising everything.

I will be attending the first annual CILEX dinner with some of the other committee members on 27th June which I am looking forward too as it should be a great evening at Chichester Yacht Club.
