IBA: Strategic Planning

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Times, they are changing. The leadership of the Indianapolis Bar Association has long made an effort to track change and respond to it through strategic planning.

In 1996 the Bar drafted its first three-year strategic plan and has continued that effort every three years since. It’s now time for attention to be given to the creation of the next plan.

The Bar’s strategic planning process involves formal and informal discussions with a variety of members and non-members. Indianapolis Bar Association President Chris Hickey recently appointed the Strategic Planning Committee to help guide the creation of the Bar’s plan.

It will be the responsibility of the committee utilizing information gathered by Bar staff in collaboration with various constituencies within the Bar to draft a plan for review by the Indianapolis Bar’s Board of Directors. The focus of that information is based upon assumptions about what practicing law in Indianapolis will be like 10 years from now. What will have changed? What will be valued? How can the organized bar help?

Accepting the invitation to assist in answering those questions are the following Strategic Plan Task Force members: Jeff Abrams, Kirstin Arthur, Reynold Berry, Jake Bradley, Scott Chinn, Vanessa Davis, Aaron Freeman, Suzanne Gaidoo, Mike Hebenstreit, John Kautzman, Tamara McMillian, Judge Tim Oakes, Colleen Powers, Lindsay Ramsey, Jason Reyome, Judge Marc Rothenberg, Eric Schmadeke, Mary Schmid, Judge Heather Welch, Bob York, and Brian Zoeller.

The task force will meet in mid-August and a draft plan is anticipated to be considered by the Board of Directors by its October meeting. The plan will include goals related to structure/governance, finances, and programs/services.•

  1. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
