The Division Looks Ahead

Amy Lin Meyerson

The 2011–2012 Bar Year is off to a tremendous start. For those of you who have been able to keep up with the whirlwind that is our Division Chair, Laura V. Farber, you would have noted that the Division has been (1) working to deliver visible and valued benefits to members to strengthen the Division’s retention and recruitment ability and to grow revenue; (2) providing pro bono and public service opportunities to train and recruit lawyers, enhance the Division’s reputation, and serve the community and the profession by establishing both a national, long-term pro bono project and also annual public service initiatives at sites of Division meetings; and (3) strengthening diversity efforts to provide training and business opportunities that increase diversity in the Division, the ABA, and the legal profession.

As outlined in Laura’s Chair-Elect plan, for the remainder of this Bar Year the Division will continue to (1) provide substantive benefits to Division members, especially rank-and-file members; (2) institutionalize a program to encourage Division members to provide pro bono and public service; and (3) provide training and business opportunities to help all members expand or strengthen their practice and to develop greater diversity in the Division
