Meet Us in the Emerald City:
Where Relationships Build Business

We are excited to extend a warm invitation to you on behalf of DRI to the 2024 Annual Meeting!

This year, the meeting will be held in Seattle on October 16-18, and we know the DRI community is ready to take in all the Emerald City has to offer. Come together with your peers to collaborate and grow—because this is where relationships build business.

As the home of breathtaking natural scenery and the birthplace of countless iconic inventions, including an entire music genre (grunge), Seattle embodies resilience, creativity, and balance—values that resonate deeply with the ethos of the defense bar.

Here's what you can look forward to at this year's Annual Meeting:

  • Numerous opportunities for networking among peers and civil defense leaders that will allow you to connect with top attorneys from around the world, build your book of business, and forge relationships that will last a lifetime.
  • Unparalleled speakers and education designed to elevate your practice in lasting ways, featuring a lineup of distinguished keynote speakers who will offer insights into emerging trends, best practices, and cutting-edge strategies in civil defense.
  • The return of the popular CLE on the GO! Earn CLE credit and network while enjoying the many sights of the Emerald City.

Mark your calendars now and join us in Seattle for what promises to be an unforgettable gathering of the DRI community. Together, let’s learn, grow, and reaffirm our shared commitment to excellence in civil defense.

We look forward to welcoming you to Seattle in October.
