Hats Off to the Southeast Workshop Advisory Board

A special thanks to Robert P. Reynolds (Reynolds, Reynolds & Little) and Jerry Markowitz (Markowitz, Ringel, Trusty + Hartog, P.A.) for organizing and sponsoring an Endowment Reception for high-level Endowment donors after the Final Night Dinner at this year’s Southeast Bankruptcy Workshop, held in July.

In 2013, the Southeast Workshop Advisory Board distinguished itself by achieving 100 percent participation by its members. They have repeated this feat over the past three years and have also held very successful silent auctions annually. There were many donors and participants whom we would like to thank:
