The panels will feature national and local speakers including Christine Lepera of New York (current Chair of the Forum), Richard J. Idell (Incoming Chair of the Forum), Nashville Forum Committee Members Henry Root (Los Angeles), Kirk Schroder (Richmond, Va.), Todd Brabec (Los Angeles), Mike Milom (Nashville) and Jim Zumwalt (Nashville).

A portion of the proceeds from the CLE program will go to benefit the Arts & Business Council’s Volunteer Lawyers & Professionals for the Arts program, which provides free legal advice to low-income artists of all disciplines, as well as emerging arts nonprofits. With a roster of over 250 generous volunteer lawyers and professionals, this program has provided $1.2 million worth of pro bono services to the creative community since opening six years ago.
