It’s Midwinter! Welcome to Austin!!

Austin is loaded with school superintendents this morning.  It’s Midwinter.  My day will start with the annual Region 13 breakfast, followed by considerable schmoozing and “hihowareyous” to those I have seen somewhere on the road this past year.

Our firm is hosting its annual reception tomorrow night, and if you are a subscriber to the Daily Dawg, you are cordially invited to attend. We gather from 5:00 pm to 6:30 at Fleming’s downtown, just a block from the convention center.  Food and drink for all.

Our firm’s annual midwinter reception is a longstanding firm tradition, going back to the days when our office was on Barton Springs Road.  When Joe Hairston and I looked over that space as a possible future office location, Joe immediately saw the possibilities. He said, “You know in January, every superintendent in the state will be in the Palmer Auditorium right across the street. We could host a reception in our office.”  Thus was born our Midwinter Firm Reception.

Now the convention is in the Austin Convention Center and we take over Fleming’s for the event.  It’s one way we can say thank you to our clients, and to honor you for the hard work you do. Our firm is all about Helping the People Who Help the Kids. That would be you—The People Who Help the Kids.  We hope to see you at Fleming’s.
