An Invitation From the 2012 TMCP Committee Chairs We invite you to participate in the 20th Annual Texas Minority Counsel Program in Houston, Texas on October 3-5, 2012. Come find out why the TMCP has become the premier client development, networking, and CLE event for attorneys in Texas!

Fred Gaona III Spencer Crain Cubbage Healy & McNamara, pllc

The TMCP’s unique format not only provides valuable CLE credit but also gives attendees an opportunity to participate in informational interviews to discuss outside counsel opportunities. The spa retreat, golf tournament, receptions and dine-arounds, which allow small groups of participants to dine together at nearby restaurants, maximize the opportunity for in-house and outside counsel to connect. We encourage you to support the TMCP and its goal of diversity in the legal profession by sponsoring this year’s conference. We are confident that sponsorship and attendance will benefit your organization. We look forward to seeing you in Houston!
