CLLA Goes to Tinseltown Virtually

Western Region Conference
Friday, September 24, 2021

Join your CLLA colleagues virtually for a day full of professional growth, business networking opportunities and a little mystery!

Keynote Speakers
Our keynotes will discuss and provide tools on stress resiliency and optimal performance during these tumultuous times.

Educational Sessions
Educational sessions with useful updates on legal issues facing creditors’ attorneys, bankruptcy attorneys, and agencies, as we discuss latest issues on enforcement of judgments, mechanic’s liens, and hot topics in collections issues.

CLEs and CEUs
CLEs and CEUs are available to all registered attendees. All live sessions will be accredited with the state(s) in which members are registered. Be sure to register on or before Tuesday, August 24 to receive CLE state(s) accreditation.

Two Murder Mysteries and Social Events
We will top off the conference with two murder mysteries, a unique forum for fun, mystery, and socialization!

It is 1928 and the birth of the talking picture has turned Hollywood on its ear. That is until famed silent movie star Sly Mandrake turns up dead on the set of this latest picture The Singing Sheik. What seems to be a tragic accident now looks more and more like a Hollywood hit job. Who could have bumped off this heartthrob of the silver screen? Could it have been controlling director Burly Bellows, frustrated with Mandrake’s lack of elocution? Or was it his vengeful scene-stealing partner, emerging starlet Nettie Pots? Was it a famous LA mobster Hoochie Coodilinni, or could it have been Mandrake’s scorned lover Zelda Pinchbottom? Pour yourself a glass of giggle water and do the Bunny Hug in this legendary Jazz Age whodunit, Terror in Tinseltown.

The moment has arrived—the thousands of entrants at the prestigious Eastmunster Kennel Dog Show have been narrowed down to seven lucky canines. They and their handlers are nervously waiting for the Head Judge to arrive and determine which dog is the “Best in Show.”. The Announcer introduces the Judge, she does not appear. The Announcer tries again. Silence. Suddenly, a minor official runs screaming into the ring. “Dead! She’s dead! Someone has killed Ada Glover!” In the ensuing chaos, the crowd is left to wonder whodunit. Was it one of the finalists, scared of how the Judge assessed their precious pooch? Was it someone who was passed over for a place in the finals? Was it one of the dog fanciers in the audience? Or was it—YOU?
