*** Vote No 40 Update
We are in the home stretch before the election and need all the help you can provide! We are within striking distance to beating this measure, but will need every vote we can get! We have opportunities for you to wave signs and distribute brochures. If you want to volunteer, e-mail, specify what you’d like to do and we will let you know how to help. Spread the word to friends by sending them an e-mail, or consider telling your clients why you’re “voting no.” Visit

*** NEW Pension Act
Are you up to speed on the new Pension Act? CBA–CLE’s expert faculty will educate you on the nuts and bolts of the important changes, including defined benefit plans, defined contribution plans, other pension law changes, and an overview of critical tax-exempt organization changes. Inform yourself! Register online: NEW Pension Act, Nov. 15.
