I wish to thank you for a fabulous program on Saturday!
While I was talking to folks during breaks and at the end of the day, they were telling me how excellent your presentation was. Likewise, Lynn's evaluation forms showed outstanding reviews.
We would not have a CLE program without presenters such as you who are willing to participate and do all of the hard work in putting the seminars together for me.
Lynn will send to you your attendance sheet reflecting the appropriate credit you earned for your attendance and participation as a speaker.
Once again, thanks so much.

Congratulations to Ron for organizing another successful seminar.
I can't thank you enough for the outstanding job you did on Saturday. Without your willingness to donate your time and talent, our Continuing Legal Education Program would not be the success that it is.
I was talking to many of the attendees at the end of the day, and they were giving me feedback about the program you put on. Their comments agree with the evaluation sheets submitted at the conclusion of the day's events. Everyone said your seminar and those of the other presenters you arranged to have speak were "superior"!
I could never have organized the day's schedule and secured all of the various seminar leaders that you were able to obtain. Your line up of speakers was outstanding! Your willingness to do so much work provided an invaluable service to attorneys within our region. I literally could not have done it without you!
On behalf of the Gloucester County Legal Education Association and particularly, the bar associations within our vicinage, my heartfelt thanks go out to you.

Ron Helmer presented a program on criminal law to a group of local attorneys. Congratulations on a job well done. We're delighted, but not surprised by the comments:
Thanks a million for giving your CLE presentation last Saturday! I reviewed the evaluation forms - you received great reviews!!
Without experienced attorneys such as you who are willing to participate and do all the work required when giving a lecture, we would not have a successful CLE program.
Also a special thanks for once again producing a quality book to handout to the folks in attendance. It looks great!
Speaking for everyone who attended -
Thanks so much for presenting your program for us.
