2018 Annual Meeting and Conference

August 8 - August 10

About the Annual Meeting and Conference

Members of the IALGBTJ are cordially invited to attend our 2018 Annual Meeting and Conference.  This year, we will meet at the New York Marriott Marquis from August 8 to 10, 2018 in conjunction with the National LGBT Bar Association’s Lavender Law Conference and Career Fair.  For the first time this year, we will offer 3 hours of judicial education through the Judicial Education Institute.

Our Annual Meeting and Conference provides a great opportunity to socialize and network with judges from across the United States and the world.  In addition to the educational programs, we usually offer unique events during the conference. Past events included a private tour of the United States Supreme Court and the United States Senate chambers – led by the official Senate historian – in Washington, D.C. in 2016, and a guided tour of the National AIDS Memorial Grove – led by its executive director – in San Francisco, CA in 2017.

This year’s Annual Dinner will be held on Friday, August 10 at 8:00 p.m. at Marseille, a French-Mediterranean restaurant that is walking distance from the hotel. The price is $95 per person, which includes food, beer, wine and soft drinks from 8 until 10 p.m., along with taxes and gratuity. Marseille is an accessible restaurant. (Early arrivals may elect to begin gathering at the cash bar at 7:30 p.m.

To attend the Annual Dinner, please RSVP to Larnzell as soon as possible. If you have already informed Larnzell that you plan to attend, no confirmation is needed.
