There will be plenty of networking time, permitting you to pose questions to the faculty, compare notes with fellow practitioners in the legal, banking and accounting fields and visit with sponsors. A luncheon on the first day of the Institute and an evening cocktail reception will afford attendees opportunities for networking and enjoying the company of your peers.
