On behalf of Foley & Lardner LLP, we hope you enjoyed the California Minority Counsel Program’s 19th Annual Business Conference. We were proud to sponsor the conference again this year, thereby continuing our tradition of support and involvement with CMCP. We are particularly proud of the fact that CMCP recognized our commitment to diversity by selecting us as the recipient of the 2006 Drucilla Stender Ramey Award.
