I’ve been asked many times why I volunteer for the Indianapolis Bar Association, and I have given lots of reasons over the years. In fact, the reasons I belong and I volunteer have changed through the years.
As I foreshadowed in an earlier column, recently members of the IndyBar met to discuss and draft the next three-year strategic plan for the association. This isn’t your typical not-for-profit organization’s strategic plan. It won’t be just filed away.
As we scratch our head over the behavior of those we see on the nightly news, we must do our part to maintain the integrity of the law, treat each other with respect and serve as a far more positive example to our colleagues, our clients and our community.
One of the many reasons the Indianapolis Bar Association has served the needs of attorneys very well for 138 years has been that its future is targeted and planned by a cross-section of our legal community.
