The nomination period has begun for the 2013 Board of Directors of the Indianapolis Bar Association, and the Honorable Jane Magnus-Stinson of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana has been appointed to chair the effort. Judge Magnus-Stinson, a former member of the Board and the 2012 recipient of the Hon. Paul H. Buchanan Jr. Award of Excellence will lead a diverse committee of active members in selecting a slate of officers for the coming year.
Joining Judge Magnus-Stinson on the committee are Carl Butler, Frost Brown Todd; Phil Isenbarger, Bingham Greenebaum Doll, Martha S. Hollingsworth, retired; Hon. James S. Kirsch, Indiana Court of Appeals; Jennifer Lukemeyer, Voyles Zahn Paul; and Sally Zweig, Katz & Korin.
Self-nominations for the board are encouraged, as are nominations of colleagues. The following vacancies exist for the coming year and must be filled by an attorney member:
• 1st Vice President (serves one-year term and will automatically assume the office of President-elect in 2014)
• Secretary (two-year term, 2013 and 2014)
• At-Large Member of Board of Managers (five positions, each two-year terms, 2013 and 2014)
Letters or the nomination form found on the IndyBar’s homepage at www.indybar.org should be forwarded to the Bar office by July 23, 2012. The Nominating Committee will select a slate of nominees, which reflects our geographic, ethnic, minority, gender and practice area diversity while recognizing leadership and service to the Indianapolis Bar Association.
IndyBar members wishing to seek election outside the nominating process may file a petition ballot which is now available at the bar office. To be valid the petition must be filed by July 23, 2012, and must contain the signatures of at least 50 attorney members of the Indianapolis Bar Association.•
