The TER National Convention celebrating the 100th anniversary of the formation of TER planned to take place in Florida at the end of the year HAS BEEN CANCELED. This decision was made based upon the rising covid-19 rate of infection in Florida and the possible need for a supplemental booster vaccination shot in the Fall of this year.

            Being concerned with the health, welfare and safety of our membership, it was felt that this was the proper decision to make at this time. Continue to check the TER website and future email notices for updates on the holding of this 100th anniversary celebration.

            We have scheduled the TER group admission to the United States Supreme Court for Tuesday, March 22, 2022.  Over the next few months, applicants need to prepare their paperwork for submission (we will send one packet with everyone's materials).  This means completing the application, which can be found at https://www.supremecourt.gov/bar/barapplication.pdf.  The Court recommends completing the first page online and printing it.  It requires two sponsor signatures.  Sponsors must be members of the Bar of the Supreme Court that personally know the applicant and are not related to the applicant.  They are currently accepting scanned signatures.  Do not fill out the motion at the bottom, as we are scheduled for admission in open court.

            Applicants will also need a Certificate of Good Standing from the state's highest court (not the State Bar) issued less than one year before the date of admission.  They are accepting electronic certificates with a visible seal.  Applicants also need to submit a check for $200.00 payable to the Supreme Court of the United States, or we can do one group check if people prefer that.  

             Our paperwork is due no later than January 24, 2022.  The Court advises that mail goes through several levels of security, so I anticipate sending the group's packet towards the beginning of January to ensure time for arrival and clearance.  That being the case, I anticipate asking for everyone to send me their paperwork sometime around mid-December to early January to ensure time for review, preparing the cover letter and packet, and submitting with enough time for delivery and security clearance.  

             The Court has a photographer available for group photos at no charge, and we will not need to make a reservation.  Whether catering options and tours/lectures are available is still to be determined.  

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Should be a fun trip!
