CLE as a profit center for your firm

Has anyone else gotten any CLE mailings from small groups of private lawyers putting on CLEs? I mean not bar associations or affiliated with a IICLE group but just 5ish lawyers advertising CLEs?

This might be a profit center for you. I honestly don't know but it must not be that difficult to get certified by the Supreme Court to qualify. I just got a mailing for a family law seminar put on by former ISBA President Bob Downs, Joseph Gitlin and a handful of others coming up.

Not to be too cynical, but why should any of the fairly prominant lawyers in various practice areas speak for any of the bar association CLEs at this point when they can just form a small business of their own and profit from it?
