Plus CLE Option Expanded to All Sections, Divisions for 2014

2013 saw the introduction of a pilot program within the IndyBar to test the viability of bundling CLE with section membership. The pilot program, which was tested with four IndyBar sections—the Appellate Practice Section, the Family Law Section, the Government Practice Section and the Real Estate and Land Use Section—proved overwhelmingly successful, attracting new members to each of the section and boosting attendance levels at CLE programs.

For 2014, the Plus CLE option is being extended to all sections and divisions, though members have the option to remain at the “basic” section or division membership level, which will provide access to basic section/division benefits, like open meetings, social events and section/division communications. Members choosing the basic membership option will register for section/division programming at standard IndyBar CLE rates. Choosing the Plus CLE membership option will allow members to join a section or division and attend all of that group’s one-hour brownbag CLE programs at no additional cost throughout 2014. Each section or division will offer a minimum of four programs, providing a savings of at least $80 per year.

Welcome New Citizens at Naturalization Ceremonies

Courtroom connotations: stress, contention and opposition. Let the IndyBar change that for you—participate in a warm, wonderful naturalization ceremony. Twice a month, the IndyBar sends representatives to the naturalization ceremonies to give welcoming words to the new citizens. Ceremonies are held in the federal courthouse, last about an hour and are held on Thursday mornings. For more information and to volunteer, contact Caren Chopp at cchopp@indybar.org.

  1. Im very happy for you, getting ready to go down that dirt road myself, and im praying for the same outcome, because it IS sometimes in the childs best interest to have visitation with grandparents. Thanks for sharing, needed to hear some positive posts for once.

  2. Been there 4 months with 1 paycheck what can i do

  3. our hoa has not communicated any thing that takes place in their "executive meetings" not executive session. They make decisions in these meetings, do not have an agenda, do not notify association memebers and do not keep general meetings minutes. They do not communicate info of any kind to the member, except annual meeting, nobody attends or votes because they think the board is self serving. They keep a deposit fee from club house rental for inspection after someone uses it, there is no inspection I know becausee I rented it, they did not disclose to members that board memebers would be keeping this money, I know it is only 10 dollars but still it is not their money, they hire from within the board for paid positions, no advertising and no request for bids from anyone else, I atteended last annual meeting, went into executive session to elect officers in that session the president brought up the motion to give the secretary a raise of course they all agreed they hired her in, then the minutes stated that a diffeerent board member motioned to give this raise. This board is very clickish and has done things anyway they pleased for over 5 years, what recourse to members have to make changes in the boards conduct

  4. Where may I find an attorney working Pro Bono? Many issues with divorce, my Disability, distribution of IRA's, property, money's and pressured into agreement by my attorney. Leaving me far less than 5% of all after 15 years of marriage. No money to appeal, disabled living on disability income. Attorney's decision brought forward to judge, no evidence ever to finalize divorce. Just 2 weeks ago. Please help.

  5. For the record no one could answer the equal protection / substantive due process challenge I issued in the first post below. The lawless and accountable only to power bureaucrats never did either. All who interface with the Indiana law examiners or JLAP be warned.
