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. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  5. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer. (See Rick Simpson's Oil on the internet or facebook).
