IBA: Bar Leaders Sought for Board Service

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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 following offices:

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 jarmstrong@indybar.org, or fax 317-269-1915. They must be received by September 1, 2010.•

  1. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.

  2. And so the therapeutic state is weaonized. How soon until those with ideologies opposing the elite are disarmed in the name of mental health? If it can start anywhere it can start in the hoosiers' slavishly politically correct capital city.

  3. So this firebrand GOP Gov was set free by a "unanimous Supreme Court" , a court which is divided, even bitterly, on every culture war issue. WHAT A RESOUNDING SLAP in the Virginia Court's face! How bad must it have been. And all the journalists, lap dogs of the status quo they are, can do is howl that others cannot be railroaded like McDonald now??? Cannot reflect upon the ruining of Winston and Julia's life and love? (Oh I forget, the fiction at this Ministry of Truth is that courts can never err, and when they do, and do greatly, as here, why then it must be ignored, since it does not compute.)

  4. My daughter is a addict and my grandson was taken by DCS and while in hospital for overdose my daughter was told to sign papers from DCS giving up her parental rights of my grandson to the biological father's mom and step-dad. These people are not the best to care for him and I was never called or even given the chance to take him, but my daughter had given me guardianship but we never went to court to finalize the papers. Please I have lost my daughter and I dont want to lose my grandson as well. I hope and look forward to speaking with you God Bless and Thank You for all of your help

  5. To Bob- Goooooood, I'm glad you feel that way! He's alive and happy and thriving and out and I'm his woman and we live in West Palm Beach Florida, where his parents have a sprawling estate on an exclusive golf course......scum bag
