In August at the ABA Annual Meeting in Toronto, Mario Sullivan became the new Secretary-Treasurer for the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. He prevailed in the first contested ABA YLD election to take place in the last five years. The Division’s last five Secretary-Treasurers, Chris Rogers, Michael Bergmann, David Wolfe, Kelly Ann Clarke, and Lizz Acee, each ran uncontested.
When I sat down with Mario to discuss the election and his plans for the next three years, he wanted me to convey one overarching message to the readers of The Affiliate. That message is that Mario wants all ABA YLD and Affiliate leaders to reach out to him to let him know what they think the Division should be focusing on. Mario wants to hear what his constituents expect him to do to improve the Division and the services it provides. Mario stands ready to hear from each of you and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
