Mile High Moves

Welcome to the October 2020 edition of Mile High Moves! 

Mile High Kudos:  Well done to the Business Partner team Chaired by Jessie Meier and co-Chair Sarah Stromberg for the Mile High Chapter Coffee Break roundtable held last week titled “What’s Going on in Your Office?” It was a very engaging conversation moderated by Mile High Business Partner Ben Harris of Pacific Office Automation.  It was a great opportunity to “see” some Mile High members and talk about the various challenges and successes going on in our Firms and legal departments. The Business Partner team also  coordinated working with the MHC Business Partners for the “swag bags” many of you received as a thank you for renewing your Mile High membership by August 31, 2020 and as a reminder that our Business Partners are here for us! The full list of MHC business partners is available at
