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. File under the Sociology of Hoosier Discipline ... “We will be answering the complaint in due course and defending against the commission’s allegations,” said Indianapolis attorney Don Lundberg, who’s representing Hudson in her disciplinary case. FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW ... Lundberg ran the statist attorney disciplinary machinery in Indy for decades, and is now the "go to guy" for those who can afford him .... the ultimate insider for the well-to-do and/or connected who find themselves in the crosshairs. It would appear that this former prosecutor knows how the game is played in Circle City ... and is sacrificing accordingly. See more on that here ... http://www.theindianalawyer.com/supreme-court-reprimands-attorney-for-falsifying-hours-worked/PARAMS/article/43757 Legal sociologists could have a field day here ... I wonder why such things are never studied? Is a sacrifice to the well connected former regulators a de facto bribe? Such questions, if probed, could bring about a more just world, a more equal playing field, less Stalinist governance. All of the things that our preambles tell us to value could be advanced if only sunshine reached into such dark worlds. As a great jurist once wrote: "Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman." Other People's Money—and How Bankers Use It (1914). Ah, but I am certifiable, according to the Indiana authorities, according to the ISC it can be read, for believing such trite things and for advancing such unwanted thoughts. As a great albeit fictional and broken resistance leaders once wrote: "I am the dead." Winston Smith Let us all be dead to the idea of maintaining a patently unjust legal order.

  2. The Department of Education still has over $100 million of ITT Education Services money in the form of $100+ million Letters of Credit. That money was supposed to be used by The DOE to help students. The DOE did nothing to help students. The DOE essentially stole the money from ITT Tech and still has the money. The trustee should be going after the DOE to get the money back for people who are owed that money, including shareholders.

  3. Do you know who the sponsor of the last-minute amendment was?

  4. Law firms of over 50 don't deliver good value, thats what this survey really tells you. Anybody that has seen what they bill for compared to what they deliver knows that already, however.

  5. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!
