There is still time to sign up to join the IndyBar’s Professionalism Committee with our inaugural IndyBar Service Day in conjunction with Indy Do Day. The event will run from 8 a.m. until noon on Friday, September 29. This is a great way to get out of your office and give back to our community.
We have three different volunteer opportunities throughout Indianapolis, so you can pick which one you like best: you can help clean up White River State Park, sort and process food donations at Gleaner’s Food Bank, or help prepare the Boy Scout camp at Camp Belzer. Please register online at indybar.org/serviceday. All volunteers will receive an IndyBar t-shirt as an expression of our thanks!
It’s that time of year when we gather with our friends and colleagues to celebrate the accomplishments of our members. We have two special events in the next few months that I encourage you to attend. The first event is our Practice Milestone Celebration where we will celebrate all members who have been practicing for more than 25 years and where we will specifically honor both 25 and 50-year practitioners. At this point in my career, I truly cannot fathom having practiced for 50 years. What an absolutely amazing accomplishment! This celebration will take place on Thursday, October 26 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Woodstock County Club. If you have been practicing 25 years or more, please join us in toasting your fellow practitioners and sharing stories from throughout the years.
Our second celebration is our annual Recognition Breakfast. Each year, we gather to honor and celebrate local leaders who make outstanding contributions to the legal profession. Breakfast this year will be at Meridian Hills Country Club at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, November 21. This will be a great way to kick off your Thanksgiving celebration as we give thanks for those people who go out of their way to promote justice in our community and serve our profession.
You can register for both events online at indybar.org/events.
The IndyBar is working with DORIS Research and Blackline Studio to determine the IndyBar’s future office space needs and we need your help in our planning efforts!
Over the next several weeks our members will have different opportunities to provide feedback and ideas to help us formulate our plans for our future workspace. Our DORIS researchers will be gathering data through a variety of interviews, focus groups, observations and surveys. Please look for these opportunities from DORIS to participate and share your thoughts, opinions and ideas with us. We welcome all member feedback as we try to make the best decisions for our future workspace.•
