9:30 PM1:30 AMDear Colleagues and Friends,

To honor the victims of the horrific events in Las Vegas on Sunday, we have decided not to hold our traditional “After Party” at this year’s NCBJ Conference. Instead, we will be donating the party funds to United Blood Services in Las Vegas. Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones also will contribute up to an additional $50,000 to match the donations made by any NCBJ Conference attendee. Upon arriving at the conference to pick up registration materials, there will be several donation boxes for you to drop a check made out to United Blood Services (cash cannot be accepted). Checks collected by the end of the day on Tuesday, 10/10/17, will be matched by our firm. We hope you understand our reluctance to throw a party under these circumstances and look forward to hosting all of you at next year’s conference in San Antonio.
