The 2014 NOVA Spring Conference, to be held at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, includes a one-day New Practitioner Session scheduled for Thursday, April 24, 2014. The General Seminar, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 25 & 26, is filled with a wide array of interesting and informative topics and presenters. The NOVA conference is intended for both new practitioners to the area of veterans’ law and more advanced practitioners. The seminar will increase your knowledge, confidence, and expertise in representing veterans before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In addition, your time may be credited to your jurisdiction’s CLE requirements.
We are excited to welcome Judge William S. Greenberg of the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims as well as Mr. Thomas J. Murphy, the Director of the Compensation and Pension Service as our featured speakers!
To maintain the professional atmosphere of the seminar, we ask that attendees wear appropriate business casual attire. Also, please respect the rights of all attendees. A high standard of public decorum is expected at all times, especially when addressing the assembly and during social functions. Your support of this policy is greatly appreciated.
Our mission is to provide the best possible training for those who represent America’s veterans. What better place to host our 2014 NOVA Spring Conference than Pittsburgh, praised worldwide as ‘the city of the future’ during the 2009 G-20 Pittsburgh Summit. Much as Pittsburgh serves as a model of transformation into the 21st century, so too NOVA is committed to facing the unprecedented challenges that await our disabled veterans with the highest caliber professionals.
The 2014 Spring Conference taps the expertise of insiders who know what’s going on in places where access is often restricted. Our goal is to bring that inside information to you through an unparalleled program of presenters. The quality of these presentations is backed by “repeat customers” whose honest feedback is the ultimate test. You are guaranteed to return to your practice with tools and content that will strengthen your representation.
