WLU 2018 Retreat

It isn’t too late to register for the annual WLU retreat on November 2-3, 2018. We still have approximately 30 spots available. We are, however, sold out of hotel rooms at the St. Regis, but there is affordable housing closeby at the Lodges at Deer Valley (deluxe hotel room) and the Silver Baron Lodge start at $159 for that weekend (go to www.deervalley.com/lodging and apply the “Fall Hotel Room Special Rate”). A shuttle is available to get you between the hotels.

Where:   St. Regis Deer Valley Resort. The rooms are booked but there may be options at other resorts or Airbnbs nearby!

When:  Friday, November 2 at 5:00 p.m. through Saturday, November 3 at 12:00 p.m.  

What: awards dinner, massages, speakers, socializing, CLE, yoga, breakfast, and much more!
You’ll receive 4 credits for attending both Friday’s and Saturday’s speakers. On Friday, we’ll hear from Roula Allouch, Chair of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. She is also an employment lawyer. She has spoken at dozens of ABA related CLEs and events. We are very fortunate to have her join us! Then on Saturday morning we will hear about civil rights in Utah and the region from Kathy Nester, our own Federal Defender, and Cynthia Roseberry! Finally, we will hear from Paula Davis-Laack about some practical and helpful tips for relieving stress while at work and play.

Cost: $150 for WLU members; $100 for judges/government/nonprofit; $50 students/scholarships; $100 for Friday only; $50 for Saturday only; $200 for non-members.
