About the Seminar
On Thursday, December 19 please join your friends and colleagues as guests of the Horry County Bar Association for “Lunch with the Masters,” a special luncheon and presentation honoring two of Horry County’s most distinguished senior attorneys. Howell Bellamy and Dalton Floyd are celebrating fifty years of excellence in the practice of law, and we want to share a meal with them and honor them for their service, mentorship, and leadership to the legal community of Horry County and South Carolina.
 
Following lunch, you are invited to stay and hear South Carolina Bar Risk Management Director Jill Rothstein and Lawyers Helping Lawyers Assistant Beth Padgett discuss the convergence of attorney mental health/substance abuse problems with the ethical practice of law. “Nit, Grit, and Wit” is an interactive and entertaining CLE program designed to use skillfully woven hypothetical tales to teach ethics and increase sensitivity to mental and emotional health concerns in the profession. It takes attention, courage, and wisdom to practice law with high ethical standards along with concern and compassion for your fellow lawyer.
 
This special CLE program qualifies for 2.0 MCLE hours, including up to 2.0 LEPR hours, and 1.0 SA/MH hours, so come on December 19 to honor Howell Bellamy and Dalton Floyd, and knock out all of your annual LEPR, as well as fulfill your triennial Mental Health/Substance Abuse requirement. 
 
The Horry County Bar Association is generously sponsoring lunch, so the registration fee of $45 is for the CLE program only. Register for lunch only or both lunch and the CLE by checking the appropriate box and sending your Registration form to the SC Bar CLE Division.
