Tau Epsilon Rho Law Society held its 83rd Annual Convention at the Hilton Oceanside Resort on Singer Island FL from December 27, 2003 - January 1, 2004.  Convention attendees again enjoyed TER's customary mix of informative CLE and outstanding dinners and group activities.  Special thanks go to David B. Liner for arranging this year's convention, Joel H. Kaufman for coordinating CLE programs, and Alan M. Tepper for ensuring smooth operations.

   On our opening evening, we were entertained by the comic stylings of Carl Guerra.  During midconvention, we took a group outing to Forbidden Broadway at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.  At our closing dinner on December 30, Roberta Clark, Associate Director of the Anti-Defamation League - Palm Beach Region, updated us on the ADL's activities and programs, the current trends in anti-semitism worldwide, and an unfortunate current example of the continuing need for the ADL to serve the purposes of all communities.  On New Year's Eve, we had dinner at Angelo & Maxie's Steakhouse at CityPlace.  And, of course, we enjoyed our traditional nightly hospitality in our private suite and a getting-away brunch on New Year's Day.

   The National Council also held its semi-annual meeting during the convention.  Among various decisions made, the Council took the following significant actions:

   At the annual membership meeting, members unanimously elected all officers to another term in office, recognizing their hard work and contributions to the Society's success.
