Voice of the co-editor
On April 3, 2004, our standing committee members met in St. Louis for our quarterly meeting in order to bring members together from throughout the state. In attendance were Gil Cubia, Tish Sheats, Yvonne Kato, Jorge Montes, Alice Noble-Allgire, Vickie Gillio, Mike Daniels, and Chair Richard Porter. We focused, among other issues, on working to insure the active involvement of women and minority members in committee work, section councils, and bar leadership. To this end, this issue of the Challenge focuses on issues of importance from an article on women leadership in the Justinians to an article focusing on emerging issues in family law.
