The Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS) will be holding its annual winter conference during the dates of Feb. 24 to 27 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Mirage Resort and Casino is slighted to be this year’s venue.
The tentative agenda for the conference is as follows. Sunday Feb. 24 will include a volunteer registration, committee meetings, exhibitor set-up and pre-registration. A Board of Directors meeting will take place that afternoon and a first-time attendees reception will be held in the evening at the hotel’s Calypso Court.
Monday, attendees will have the chance to meet and greet at the morning break and registration. Seminars taking place that day will include electronic skip-tracing techniques and courtroom etiquette. Speakers Steve Rambam, Jay Labe and Jerry Watson will be featured in the afternoon’s opening session. The latter two will discuss updates to the American Bar Association Manual’s section on commercial bail bonds.
Tuesday highlights will include a skip tracing certification course, a feature presentation by Steve Rambam entitled Privacy is Dead, an additional session on courtroom etiquette training, internet marketing and electronic skip tracing techniques.
The final day’s sessions will feature drug training with the DEA and Pretrial release campaign. Registration is now open through the PBUS website. Discount room rates are currently being offered.
