*** Get Lost, Listen to Music or Strike a Pose
You can win a GPS system, an iPod or a digital camera by participating in the 2007 Colorado Bar Association Economic Survey. This confidential and anonymous survey, conducted by Applied Statistics Laboratory of Ann Arbor Michigan, will be launched in early October. You will receive an e-mail directing you to a website, where you’ll have the option of completing the survey online or manually. The survey will take only 20 minutes, and the results will provide a sound basis to assist lawyers in future economic decisions affecting their practices or organizations.
