Help Needed in Planning Member Memorial Program

Interested in helping to coordinate a memorial service to be held this fall to honor recently deceased members of our Indianapolis Bar Association community?  If so, contact Julie Armstrong at jarmstrong@indybar.org.  Planning discussions will start in early April and should require no more than two in-person meetings (one hour or less) and participation in a couple teleconferences.  Of course, attendance at the program would also be needed.  The date of the life celebration will be set by the planning group.
