Annual rescheduled, January Prosecutor Trial Skills Course cancelled

As most of you probably know, TDCAA’s Annual Criminal and Civil Law Update that was scheduled for September in Galveston was postponed due to Hurricane Ike. To secure appropriate hotel and training room capacities, we needed to utilize one of our existing contracts and amend it to include the Annual agenda.

After careful consideration of many options, we decided to hold the rescheduled Annual in Austin at the Doubletree North Hotel, which was originally slated as the site of our January 2009 Prosecutor Trial Skills Course. Unfortunately, we had neither the faculty, resources, nor room space to hold both the Annual and the Trial Skills Course simultaneously. Thus, the January Trial Skills Course has been cancelled.

However, we have secured additional rooms and meeting space for the July 2009 Prosecutor Trial Skills Course (also set at the Doubletree North in Austin, July 12–17) to accommodate the extra attendees who normally would have attended the January session.

Contact us with questions or concerns regarding this change. We hope to see you there! ✤
