Here it is! Winter has properly arrived here at the office, and we’re happy to join the rest of Flagstaff in snow covered branches and slippery streets. Let it snow!

On the subject of Winter, both attorneys Samantha Kelty and Kristen Dikeman will be presenting at the upcoming NAGSA Annual Winter Conference, which is scheduled for December 13 through 15 at the Tropicana in Las Vegas.  The theme is “Empowering Our Generations Through Communication.” Sam’s presentation is entitled:  “Likes, Hashtags and Pokes:  What is Cyber-Bullying and What Do We Do About It?” Kristen’s presentation is entitled:  “Calendars, Communication, and Caselaw: Addressing Common Challenges in Special Education Law Compliance.”  They both will be presenting on December 13, 2018, so be sure to put it on your calendar now!

Of course, we would be remiss to mention Kristen above, and not let out a huge congratulations for her passing the Navajo Nation Bar Exam. Kristen is our firm’s newest attorney, and she has been doing excellent work in these short months. Passing the bar is just an example of the great work she regularly does, and we’re excited to see what else she’ll accomplish with us. Way to go, Kristen!
