Looking for a chance to lead? To grow? To make a difference in the Illinois State Bar Association and the legal profession? Then consider nominating yourself for one of our many section councils and committees for 2014-15.
As president-elect, it’s my privilege to make appointments to councils and committees for the coming fiscal year. These small but influential groups are the lifeblood of the ISBA. They produce newsletters and CLE programs, propose legislation, and help ISBA serve its members in countless ways.
More than 1,000 ISBA members serve on committees and section councils. It’s a great way to make new friendships and advance your career. While not everyone can be appointed, all who seek appointment will be considered. I encourage each of you – especially young lawyers and others whose participation makes the ISBA more diverse – to complete the online form at isba.org/membergroups/nominations.
