The competition will take place Monday, May 8 through Monday, May 15. More information about the competition and a complete schedule may be found at the bottom of this email.

-          3 free CLE credits and 2.5 credits for each additional night judged*

Thank you in advance for your support. We hope to see you at the competition.

Sincerely,
