President's Message
ACTEC Foundation President Martin Hallby Martin Hall,
ACTEC Foundation President

The 2016 ACTEC Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, offers a dynamic locale for a number of ACTEC Foundation events.
By the time of publication, TEAM ACTEC will have completed a 383 mile bike ride from Phoenix to Las Vegas. Led by Robert E. (Bob) Temmerman, Jr., a group of dedicated ACTEC Fellows accepted the challenge to commit their time, energy, and resources to pedal in support of all Foundation activities, including the student writing competition, the biennial academic symposium, the Wills, Trusts, and Estates Law eJournal and the recently launched ACTEC Young Leaders program. And it’s not too late to show your support. Simply log into the ACTEC Foundation website and make a contribution. One billable hour equivalent is all that we ask (more , of course, is welcome). Please congratulate our riders and wish them a speedy recovery.
