IBA: Bar Foundation Seeks Leaders

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Your Indianapolis Bar Foundation is seeking energetic leaders interested in helping to guide this dynamic fundraising board in 2011. The charitable arm of the Indianapolis Bar, the IBF raises on average $300,000 annually and distributes more than 75% of the money raised each year to support local law-related efforts.

Volunteering with the Foundation has a much greater emphasis on fundraising than policy-making. No previous Bar experience is required, simply a desire to serve. Committee members are needed to assist in the planning and execution of events and other activities geared toward increasing the visibility of the organization.

Nominations for board members are also being sought. The time required of a Board Member to attend planning sessions and related events is typically five (5) hours or less a month. Please take the time to consider nominating a colleague or yourself for these worthwhile roles in our legal community. Deadline for response is August 30.

Please submit letters of interest by e-mail to ibf@indybar.org or mail to 135 N. Pennsylvania Street, Suite 1500 Indianapolis, IN 46204. Questions should be directed to IBF Nominating Committee Chair Phil Genetos at phil.genetos@icemiller.com or to IBF Executive Director Julie Armstrong at jarmstrong@indybar.org or call 317.29.2000.•

  1. Wishing Mary Willis only God's best, and superhuman strength, as she attempts to right a ship that too often strays far off course. May she never suffer this personal affect, as some do who attempt to change a broken system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QojajMsd2nE

  2. Indiana's seatbelt law is not punishable as a crime. It is an infraction. Apparently some of our Circuit judges have deemed settled law inapplicable if it fails to fit their litmus test of political correctness. Extrapolating to redefine terms of behavior in a violation of immigration law to the entire body of criminal law leaves a smorgasbord of opportunity for judicial mischief.

  3. I wonder if $10 diversions for failure to wear seat belts are considered moral turpitude in federal immigration law like they are under Indiana law? Anyone know?

  4. What a fine article, thank you! I can testify firsthand and by detailed legal reports (at end of this note) as to the dire consequences of rejecting this truth from the fine article above: "The inclusion and expansion of this right [to jury] in Indiana’s Constitution is a clear reflection of our state’s intention to emphasize the importance of every Hoosier’s right to make their case in front of a jury of their peers." Over $20? Every Hoosier? Well then how about when your very vocation is on the line? How about instead of a jury of peers, one faces a bevy of political appointees, mini-czars, who care less about due process of the law than the real czars did? Instead of trial by jury, trial by ideological ordeal run by Orwellian agents? Well that is built into more than a few administrative law committees of the Ind S.Ct., and it is now being weaponized, as is revealed in articles posted at this ezine, to root out post moderns heresies like refusal to stand and pledge allegiance to all things politically correct. My career was burned at the stake for not so saluting, but I think I was just one of the early logs. Due, at least in part, to the removal of the jury from bar admission and bar discipline cases, many more fires will soon be lit. Perhaps one awaits you, dear heretic? Oh, at that Ind. article 12 plank about a remedy at law for every damage done ... ah, well, the founders evidently meant only for those damages done not by the government itself, rabid statists that they were. (Yes, that was sarcasm.)

  5. Justice has finally been served. So glad that Dr. Ley can finally sleep peacefully at night knowing the truth has finally come to the surface.
