Message from the BALIF Board
You probably all know what I wanted to talk about this week, and so I hope that I will get to see every one of you at this year's BALIF Holiday Party. This year we are having it at Beaux, and there will be drinks, yummy snacks, dancing and all kinds of Holiday merriment. Don't forget to bring your BALIF membership card for special membership perks at the event. It also is a great way to introduce new folks to BALIF, so bring your colleagues, schoolmates or that handsome patent attorney in the neighboring office you just needed an excuse to grab a drink with!
After all, everyone loves a party and no one throws a party quite like BALIF!
