Convention Speakers! 
Region II is very excited to present Marcia Patrisso, the court reporter who took the Boston Marathon Bombing trial.  She will be speaking to us on Saturday morning!
Chuck Motter will be teaching us about technology !

Saturday afternoon we will be hearing from:
Sean O'Brien with the Innocence Project.  
Bob Ramsey will present on getting the murder conviction of Mark Woodworth overturned.  
Mark Woodworth was twice convicted in the murder of Cathy Robertson and the assault of her surviving husband, Lyndel Robertson. After a deeper look into the cases Woodworth stood trial in, the Missouri Supreme Court found reason to vacate him of the crimes, based on purely circumstantial evidence and no solid, fact driven data.

Sunday morning we will be having the CRR exam!  Then there will be software vendors presenting.  So come and learn more about your Eclipse, Case Catalyst and Dragon!  If you have a different software, let us know!  We can still find room -- just let us know who to invite to speak!

Social Events! 
Of course, we're going to do some fun things!  Friday night we will be hosting an exciting social event.  We're looking at doing an escape room.  Haven't seen one?  Here's a link!  
Saturday night will be our Happy Hour and auction!  Please come, have fun!  If you have an item to donate, please let us know!


Trivia Night for Region II was held on September 24, 2016 and we raised $1500.  Thanks for all who came, participated, donated, volunteered!  It was a great time!
