It’s already that time of year, when attention turns to nominating the Indianapolis Bar Association Board of Directors
slate. Because Indybar members are the greatest resource in identifying future leaders, a request for nominations has been
issued. Each Indybar member is encouraged to submit the name(s) of any Indybar attorney member for nomination to any of the
1st Vice President (serves one-year term and will automatically assume the office of President-elect in 2013)
Secretary (two-year term, 2011 and 2012); and
At-Large Member of Board of Managers (five positions, each two-year terms, 2011 and 2012)
ABA Delegate (one-year term, 2011).
The Nominating Committee will endeavor to choose a slate of nominees, which reflects the Indybar’s geographic, ethnic, minority, gender and practice area diversity while recognizing leadership and service to the Indianapolis Bar Association. Serving on this year’s Nominating Committee are Chair George Plews of Plews Shadley Racher & Braun, Hon. Cale Bradford of the Indiana Court of Appeals, Hon. Annie Christ-Garcia of the Marion Superior Court, Ryan Gardner an attorney at law, Doug Hill of Hill Fulwider McDowell Funk & Matthews, Mary Panszi of Lewis Wagner LLP and Steve Peters of Harrison & Moberly LLP.
In 2009, the Nominating Committee received over 30 letters of interest. A number of goals for the 2011 Board have already been identified and will include the widening of member services, enhanced communications with members regarding the programs and activities available through the Indybar, and the enhancement of the image and awareness of the Indybar and its members in our metropolitan area.
Nominations should be forwarded to Indybar Nominating Committee, 135 N. Pennsylvania Street, Suite 1500, Indianapolis, IN 46204, email email@example.com, or fax 317-269-1915. They must be received by September 1, 2010.•
