Noon CLE meetings are typically held at the Belo Mansion on the fourth Thursday of every month (with some exceptions).
For in person/live meetings, the members usually participate in a pre-meeting network activity 30 minutes before the CLE presentation begins.
We also host periodic breakfast CLE roundtable discussions at a North Dallas location on important IP topics.
