    • Why having your own boundaries is especially important if you lead a team (i.e., modeling good behavior and creating a culture that values individual well-being).

    About FORGE

    Forge is an organization within The Greater Topeka Partnership, that offers opportunities for YP’s ages 18-40 to participate in educational, philanthropic, networking, and social programs. The name “Forge” conjures instant imagery; molten steel being molded and crafted into something greater. The imagery draws great parallels to the mission of Forge, young professionals drawn together to become a part of something greater than themselves. In Topeka, young professionals are a force to be reckoned with, they are not sitting by, idly waiting their turn. When they move together -with central focus- people notice. The imagery for Forge combines these two-story arcs. An anvil is a tool used to shape raw materials and transform them for their maximum potential. The North American bison is the largest land mammal in the US, impossible to ignore. The animal as an individual is striking and impressive, but as a part of the larger group, they are unstoppable, forging forward and changing the landscape of their environment.

    Mission To make Topeka a place where all young talent will live, work, play, connect and lead.

    TBA will provide a round of drinks for those with membership. *

    *Food, drinks or other items ordered by individuals will not be paid for by the TBA.

    Identification and Preservation of Electronically Stored Information

    Webinar CLE -Zoom

    Link to register for zoom (required) and

    materials will be sent out 1-2 days prior to program. 

    Electronically stored information (ESI) in litigation has changed significantly in recent years. Once almost exclusively digitized paper records and email archives, the varieties of ESI have multiplied exponentially. Similarly, the locations where ESI are stored are more numerous than ever, including mobile, cloud, and IoT. The result is a complex effort to find and collect relevant data in whatever location or format it is stored. This presentation covers these technical topics from the perspective of the legal practitioner, highlighting the key factors an attorney should consider ensuring that all relevant data has been identified and preserved. 

    *Pending approval for 1 hour CLE in KS.
