Hi all—we’re ramping up to the first-ever ACS Moot Court Competition on March 4-5, and we want you to be involved! But there’s lots more coming up—read on for reports on our events and programs. As always, send us your suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
MEMBERSHIP PARTY, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 2!
We’re throwing another membership party this Thursday at Amsterdam Café from 9-10, with an open bar and great food. If you’re not a member yet, you can join at the door for $10 (check or credit card). If you are a member, come on down and party for free—and bring your friends!
Afterwards, if you want to keep partying, Bar Review will be just down the street at Casbah Rouge. See you there! Got questions? Whitney Russell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
FIRST-EVER ACS MOOT COURT COMPETITION--BE A PART OF IT!
The first-ever ACS Moot Court competition is coming up. Show your Columbia pride and come out to volunteer that weekend! You’ll have the opportunity to network with other ACS members from across the country, the lawyers and judges who’ll be judging, and the ACS National Staff—including Executive Director Lisa Brown, who’ll be here on Sunday! You’ll also be invited to the two weekend parties—Happy Hour on Friday and an awards reception on Saturday, featuring remarks by Jack Greenberg. It's a great opportunity to meet ACS members and learn more about the organization, especially if you want to run for the Board.
We’ll be tabling at lunch this Wednesday and Thursday to answer questions and take your signups. Questions—or want to sign up? Email April Day at email@example.com.

**Don’t miss the next general membership meeting on Tuesday, February 7—we’ll be talking about ACS Board elections and the Moot Court competition, plus much more
**On February 8, don’t miss Professors Damrosch, Dorf, and Edgar discussing the NSA surveillance controversy at lunch
**Stay tuned for more later in the month!
