LPBA Winter 1999 Meeting
Le Meridian Hotel
New Orleans, LA


The Winter 1999 meeting of the LPBA in New Orleans was an unqualified success, with the largest attendance ever for a winter meeting! Our President, Cecile Hatfield, descibes the meeting as follows:
For those of you who were unable to attend the LPBA Mid-Winter Meeting in New Orleans on February 10-14, 1999, you missed a really great program and meeting. We broke all previous records for attendance at a Mid-Winter Meeting. As a 20 year member of the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association I can not remember ever seeing our members have such a good time at a meeting.
When I became President of the LPBA in August, 1998, many members reminded me that the Mid-Winter and Annual Meetings should be FUN. To that end, I appointed Rich Musat as Chair of the Entertainment Committee for the Banquet. He was assisted by Gary Allen and Jim Pokorny. The results were fantastic. We not only discovered the singing talents of our members, via Kareoke, but the place was jumping and hopping with our members' inventive dancing. We had Fun, Fun, Fun.
In truth and in fact, the location enabled us to really enjoy this meeting. The Le Meridian hotel was luxurious and located right on the parade route. The Mardi Gras celebration added to the fun. It was spectacular, especially for those of us who have never before attended Mardi Gras in New Orleans. The French food at the famous restaurants was great and reservations were never a problem. The jazz bands were superb. The Mardi Gras parade and floats were awesome. It was a memorable meeting!
We are planning a superlative Annual Meeting and program in Montreal, Canada, for July 14-17, 1999. Please join us there for another fun-packed time, and an outstanding educational CLE program.
