IBA: Search Begins for the Future Bar Board Members

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The depth of talented leaders within the Indianapolis Bar Association is well known in bar association circles around the country. I am consistently approached at national meetings by bar representatives from other regions who ask where we find such dynamic and committed volunteers. I’ve come to see that our local culture fosters volunteerism and leadership is cultivated at all corners of our legal community. We’ve now reached that point in the year where attention turns to identifying a new slate of volunteer leaders to move the Association forward in the coming year. This effort begins with a blank sheet of paper, and the help of all IndyBar members is needed.

Self-nominations are encouraged, as are nominations of colleagues. As outlined in the Association’s bylaws, the following vacancies exist for the coming year and must be filled by attorney members:

1st Vice President (serves one-year term and will automatically assume the office of President-elect in 2014)

Treasurer (two-year term, 2012 and 2013)

ABA Delegate (two-year term, 2012 and 2013)

At-Large Member of Board of Managers (five positions, each two-year terms, 2012 and 2013); and

Reflect upon the mission of the Indianapolis Bar Association (to serve our members, promote justice and enhance the legal profession), and upon the willingness to assist us in fulfilling this mission. The time required of a board member to attend meetings and related events is typically five hours or less a month, with the President volunteering 20 hours or more per month.

Please take a moment to consider those to whom you would entrust the future leadership of your Association, and submit a letter or a nomination form found on the IndyBar’s homepage at www.indybar.org to the Nominating Committee by July 8, 2011. The Nominating Committee will select a slate of nominees, which reflects our geographic, ethnic, minority, gender and practice area diversity while recognizing leadership and service to the Indianapolis Bar Association.

Members wishing to seek election outside the nominating process may file a petition ballot which is now available at the bar office. To be valid the petition must be filed by July 8, 2011 and must contain the signatures of at least 50 attorney members of the Indianapolis Bar Association.•

  1. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  2. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  3. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.

  4. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  5. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)
