CSUSA Annual Meeting 2015

When: June 7, 2015 - June 9, 2015 - This event has passed


The Annual Meeting is our largest event of the year, drawing members of the copyright community from across the U.S. and beyond. The schedule will provide ample opportunity to connect with old friends and to make new ones!

The Meeting will also include the presentation of the Volunteer of the Year and Excellence in Creativity Awards, the Annual Softball Classic and the McKay Tennis Tournament, and recreational activities that take advantage of the Newport setting. New attendees will have the opportunity to participate in our host-hostee program and attend a special reception.

CSUSA will be applying for 6-8 CLE credits, including 1 ethics credit, for the Annual Meeting sessions.
