From the President 
The Winter Meeting is just around the corner and for you procrastinators - you can still register for this can't miss meeting. We are looking at record attendance so act today!

The Federation has traditionally distinguished itself as a leader among defense organizations with programs such as Trial Masters and Masters in Marketing. In Amelia Island we will unveil a first of its kind program that will continue to separate Federation members from all others. Rather than me outlining the details of Evolve, I thought I would share some excerpts from a blog recently posted by Federation member Steve Embry on the Evolve Initiative.

See you in Amelia!

Because the auction is online, you can participate even if you can't make the Winter Meeting, so there is no excuse not to start making bids that benefit the FDCC Foundation and all its great work.
Don't see anything you want? No problem - you can still make a direct donation that will go to support the Foundation.
Good luck and thank you for your support!
