A message to our membership:

I hope you are healthy and following safe practices at this time.

We understand that this is a very uncertain and stressful time. We at PASD want to reassure all of you that PASD remains committed to our probate legal community. We are rearranging our 2020 education schedule to be up and running as soon as this crisis subsides. We have considered offering webinars, but as you know, our mission has included a commitment to providing in person lunch seminars to encourage collegiality among our membership and the probate community. While we have every intention of continuing to fulfill our mission in this manner, if the crisis continues into May, we may make other choices to ensure we are serving our membership. We will certainly update you of any changes to our immediate plans.

We thank you for your continuing support of PASD. We look forward to continuing to provide you with quality legal education at an affordable price, and we look forward to seeing all of you when this crisis abates.

In the meantime, please stay healthy and take care of yourselves and your families.

PASD President
