As Chair of the International Law Section, I congratulate the Co-Chairs on a successful "Cuba 2014: What the U.S. Legal and Business Communities Need to Know" conference, held at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando, Florida, November 20-21, 2014. Conference Co-Chairs Tony Zamora, Carlos Loumiet of Broad and Cassel, and Milton Vescovacci of GrayRobinson did a superb job in organizing this event. ILS' own Program Administrator, Angie Froelich, also did an outstanding job. The speaker evaluations revealed that the 44 attendees were also very pleased, and they look forward to attending next year's conference to be held in either Tampa, Florida, or perhaps Havana, Cuba. Thank you again to our event sponsors, GrayRobinson, Broad and Cassel, and Cuba News.
