TAU EPSILON RHO LAW SOCIETY will hold its 85th Annual National Convention and Membership Meeting at the SHERATON YANKEE TRADER BEACH HOTEL located across from the beach in Fort Lauderdale , FL , from Tuesday, December 27, 2005 through Sunday, January 1, 2006. This year’s fabulous room rates begin at $169.00 per night single or double occupancy, with special room rates also available on a limited basis for ocean view rooms and suites. These special TER rates are available from December 20th to January 8th and only for TAU EPSILON RHO LAW SOCIETY members and their guests!!

    The SHERATON YANKEE TRADER BEACH HOTEL is a magnificent facility with all the amenities of a superior first class hotel. Guestrooms feature private voice mail, high speed internet access, non-smoking option, duel line telephones, coffee makers with complimentary coffee and tea, hair dryer and in room movies and video games.

    Included in your $500.00 per couple ($250.00 for singles) Convention Registration Fee are the opening night “Chanukah” dinner with entertainment; continental breakfast prior to the business meetings; and the installation dinner with an entertaining program.  As always, the hospitality suite will be open every night for snacks, informal get-togethers and those “famous stories.” Complete details and convention updates will be posted on our web page, www.ter-law.org. If you will be bringing non-member guests to the convention, other than your children, they will be required to pay the $500.00 registration fee in order to qualify for our group’s reduced room rate.  Of course, those registered guests are entitled to participate in all of the TER activities and functions including evenings in hospitality. 

    We are again attempting to schedule certified CLE sessions to take place during the convention. Details concerning our CLE speakers will be available shortly as well as information for obtaining CLE credit for attending the sessions. We are currently searching for interesting and relevant speakers for the installation dinner meeting and your comments and/or suggestions will be taken under advisement. Again, check the web site for continuing updates.
