IBA: Fun Abounds at the Bench Bar Conference

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Though the Bench Bar Conference’s unparalleled educational programming naturally receives top billing, its plentiful non-CLE related offerings are also worthy of being shared and appreciated. From golf to trivia, these activities are vital in creating the casual, relaxed atmosphere that has made the Bench Bar Conference a one of a kind event for 20 years. Check out some of the highlights, and visit www.indybenchbar.org to register!

Golf Tournament

After a cold, rainy spring, it’s likely that hitting the links will stay at the top of many dedicated golfers’ to-do lists throughout the summer. Organized by veteran Bench Bar golfer Bob York and sponsored by Wilson Kehoe & Winingham, the Bench Bar Golf Tournament promises to be the perfect opportunity to tee up a great Bench Bar experience. Golfers will enjoy a day at Champions Pointe, a Fuzzy Zoeller course located in Henryville, Indiana, just 25 minutes from the Bench Bar host hotel in Louisville. Feeling competitive? Cash prizes (and bragging rights) are in store for victorious foursomes. Not a pro? Never fear—golfers of all ability levels are welcome!

Thursday Evening Cocktails & Dinner

The conference’s Thursday dinner option has steadily grown in popularity as attendees, seasoned pros and first-timers alike gather to begin socializing and networking prior to the official kick-off to the programming on Friday morning. Attendees at this year’s dinner, sponsored by Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, are in for a treat as we take over one of Louisville’s newest restaurants, Quattro. Quattro opened up in early 2013 to stellar reviews and features “uniquely fresh flavors and rustic Italian cooking in a beautiful setting and exciting atmosphere.” Get a sneak peek at our dinner experience at www.quattrolouisville.com.

Lighten Up and Laugh Luncheon

In a profession that involves great responsibility and a need for near constant focus and attention, it’s easy to take life a bit too seriously. Nationally renowned speaker Craig Zablocki will help attendees take a lighter approach to life, injecting humor into everyday experiences. Learn more about Craig at www.craigzablocki.com.

Trivia Night to benefit the Indianapolis Bar Foundation

After making its Bench Bar debut in 2012, Trivia Night is back! If last year’s packed room and stiff competition are any indication, 2013’s rendition will truly be a can’t-miss feature of the Bench Bar Conference. Trivia emcees James Bell and Adam Christiansen will have participants laughing as they battle it out to claim the title of IBF Trivia Champions and the traveling Thinker trophy. Plus, all of this fun benefits a tremendously worthy cause—the Indianapolis Bar Foundation. You can’t lose!

  1. I was wondering about the 6 million put aside for common attorney fees?does that mean that if you are a plaintiff your attorney fees will be partially covered?

  2. My situation was hopeless me and my husband was on the verge of divorce. I was in a awful state and felt that I was not able to cope with life any longer. I found out about this great spell caster drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.com and tried him. Well, he did return and now we are doing well again, more than ever before. Thank you so much Drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.comi will forever be grateful to you Drlawrencespelltemple@hotmail.com

  3. I expressed my thought in the title, long as it was. I am shocked that there is ever immunity from accountability for ANY Government agency. That appears to violate every principle in the US Constitution, which exists to limit Government power and to ensure Government accountability. I don't know how many cases of legitimate child abuse exist, but in the few cases in which I knew the people involved, in every example an anonymous caller used DCS as their personal weapon to strike at innocent people over trivial disagreements that had no connection with any facts. Given that the system is vulnerable to abuse, and given the extreme harm any action by DCS causes to families, I would assume any degree of failure to comply with the smallest infraction of personal rights would result in mandatory review. Even one day of parent-child separation in the absence of reasonable cause for a felony arrest should result in severe penalties to those involved in the action. It appears to me, that like all bureaucracies, DCS is prone to interpret every case as legitimate. This is not an accusation against DCS. It is a statement about the nature of bureaucracies, and the need for ADDED scrutiny of all bureaucratic actions. Frankly, I question the constitutionality of bureaucracies in general, because their power is delegated, and therefore unaccountable. No Government action can be unaccountable if we want to avoid its eventual degeneration into irrelevance and lawlessness, and the law of the jungle. Our Constitution is the source of all Government power, and it is the contract that legitimizes all Government power. To the extent that its various protections against intrusion are set aside, so is the power afforded by that contract. Eventually overstepping the limits of power eliminates that power, as a law of nature. Even total tyranny eventually crumbles to nothing.

  4. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  5. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!
