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

  1. Joe, you might want to do some reading on the fate of Hoosier whistleblowers before you get your expectations raised up.

  2. I had a hospital and dcs caseworker falsify reports that my child was born with drugs in her system. I filed a complaint with the Indiana department of health....and they found that the hospital falsified drug screens in their investigation. Then I filed a complaint with human health services in Washington DC...dcs drug Testing is unregulated and is indicating false positives...they are currently being investigated by human health services. Then I located an attorney and signed contracts one month ago to sue dcs and Anderson community hospital. Once the suit is filed I am taking out a loan against the suit and paying a law firm to file a writ of mandamus challenging the courts jurisdiction to invoke chins case against me. I also forwarded evidence to a u.s. senator who contacted hhs to push an investigation faster. Once the lawsuit is filed local news stations will be running coverage on the situation. Easy day....people will be losing their jobs soon...and judge pancol...who has attempted to cover up what has happened will also be in trouble. The drug testing is a kids for cash and federal funding situation.

  3. (A)ll (C)riminals (L)ove (U)s is up to their old, "If it's honorable and pro-American, we're against it," nonsense. I'm not a big Pence fan but at least he's showing his patriotism which is something the left won't do.

  4. While if true this auto dealer should be held liable, where was the BMV in all of this? How is it that the dealer was able to get "clean" titles to these vehicles in order to sell them to unsuspecting consumers?

  5. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless [ ] Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. GOD BLESS THE GOVERNORS RESISTING! Count on the gutless judiciary to tie our children down and facilitate the swords being drawn across their throats. Wake Up America ...
