Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - April 16, 2013
The Pittsburgh Regional Meeting was held successfully at The Duquesne Club. Approximately 30 to 40 attended, split about 50/50 between members and prospective members. Larry Silverman, former GC for the Pittsburgh Pirates, was the guest speaker and was a hit for any sports/law baseball enthusiast. All in all it was a great evening.
Thank you to local chairs David Rosenberg and Henry Sneath.
