The Women and the Law Committee has sponsored numerous receptions throughout the state of Illinois to offer an opportunity for women attorneys to network and socialize. On Friday, April 21, 2006, the committee hosted a reception at the Creve Coeur Club in Peoria. It was fun to see so many young aspiring women attorneys in Peoria!!! When I moved to Peoria 11 years ago, there was just a handful of us. Many of our committee members, including ISBA President-Elect Irene Bahr, traveled from all over the state to meet their colleagues in Peoria. It was a great evening, and we thank all of you who attended, participated, and helped plan the event. Special thanks to Dave Wentworth and the firm of Hasselberg, Williams, Grebe, Snodgrass and Birdsall for sponsoring the committee.
