Holiday Social Coming up on December 11

The snow is falling, the birds have flown south, and the bears are hibernating... Just not in Atlanta! In any case, it's almost the holidays! After a one month break, we invite all Atlanta IP Inn Members to our annual Holiday Social and charity collection on Wednesday, December 11.

This year's fun-filled event will be at the Piedmont Driving Club, Alexandria Room, from 6 to 8 PM. There is no "program," just an evening to relax and socialize with your fellow Inn members. A calendar invitation will be emailed to everyone soon. Please respond to the calendar invite so that we will have an appropriate head-count for food and drink purposes. The Driving Club requires "business attire," so gentlemen that means wear your coat and tie!
Collection for Charity We will be collecting ties and business attire for charity at the social; Please go through your closets over the next few weeks for donations. For gentleman that neglect to wear a coat and tie to the event, you borrow one of the tasteful donations during the social. Be warned, however, that the Executive Committee will make the selection for you!
Directions
The Piedmont Driving Club is on Piedmont Road just north of 14th Street (going towards Monroe); the entrance is marked simply "Private." Once you turn into the driveway, you can turn left for valet parking or drive straight ahead toward (underground) for self-parking.
We look forward to seeing everyone in December!

2012-13 Pupilage Group Assignments

All Atlanta IP Inn of court members have been assigned to a pupilage group. Groups present the topics at each programming meeting through the Inn year. Your pupilage group chair will contact you in advance of your group's scheduled meeting to plan and arrange for your presentation. These groups are also an opportunity to meet and get to know fellow members in a smaller setting than the large, monthly meetings.
