Join us for IADC's 55th Annual Meeting for members.  We're trying out a new meeting location this year:  The Limelight Hotel.  It's on the edge of downtown Ketchum within walking distance to the many wonderful restaurants.  The hotel features beautifully-designed modern guest rooms; a giant patio area with a mountain view, fire pits, a pool and hot tub; and an expansive lobby, with food and beverage service, that's perfect for gathering with colleagues to share some legal fish stories and laughs!   Breakfast in the lobby each morning is included with your stay.

The hotel has suites, too. They may be booked by request and are priced at a different special rate for our group, based upon availability. 



There’s no better way to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the area and the approach of autumn than playing a round of golf with colleagues on the Sun Valley Resort’s Trail Creek course.  Join in the fun of IADC’s annual golf tournament!

Pre-register now ($105 green/tournament fee includes tax). Check-in is at 12:30PM with modified shotgun start at 1:00PM.  Scramble format.
