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. Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend in December, but U.S. District Judge Robert Miller later reduced that to about $540,000 to put the damages for suffering under the statutory cap of $300,000.

  2. I was trying to remember, how did marriage get gay in Kentucky, did the people vote for it? Ah no, of course not. It was imposed by judicial fiat. The voted-for official actually represents the will of the majority in the face of an unelected federal judiciary. But democracy only is just a slogan for the powerful, they trot it out when they want and call it bigotry etc when they don't.

  3. Ah yes... Echoes of 1963 as a ghostly George Wallace makes his stand at the Schoolhouse door. We now know about the stand of personal belief over service to all constituents at the Carter County Clerk door. The results are the same, bigotry unable to follow the directions of the courts and the courts win. Interesting to watch the personal belief take a back seat rather than resign from a perception of local power to make the statement.

  4. An oath of office, does it override the conscience? That is the defense of overall soldier who violates higher laws, isnt it? "I was just following orders" and "I swore an oath of loyalty to der Fuhrer" etc. So this is an interesting case of swearing a false oath and then knowing that it was wrong and doing the right thing. Maybe they should chop her head off too like the "king's good servant-- but God's first" like St Thomas More. ...... We wont hold our breath waiting for the aclu or other "civil liberterians" to come to her defense since they are all arrayed on the gay side, to a man or should I say to a man and womyn?

  5. Perhaps we should also convene a panel of independent anthropological experts to study the issues surrounding this little-known branch of human sacrifice?
