Solos and Smalls: Get Involved!
The IndyBar’s Solo/Small Firm Committee is in the process of selecting its Executive Committee for 2017. The Executive Committee meets monthly and plans and executes educational programming, social events, and community service initiatives to benefit IndyBar solo/small firm attorneys and the larger community.
If you would like to get more involved by serving on the Executive Committee, please submit a brief statement of interest to Lesley Hayes at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Monday, Oct. 3, 2016. The statement need not be long, but it would be helpful to know where and what area(s) of law you practice and any particular interests or goals you have for serving on the Executive Committee.
