Chair’s Message

By Robert H. Thomas

The Year of Living Creatively

It is my pleasure, as Chair of the Section of State and Local Government Law, to report on the 2017–2018 Bar year. When Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum entrusted me with the Section Chair’s gavel during the ABA Annual Meeting in New York in August 2017, I remarked that the upcoming Bar year would be challenging. It would be a year in which we could experiment; view fundamental organizational changes within the ABA as an opportunity and try to minimize the downsides; see what currently works with the way we do things and what doesn’t; and emphasize what makes ABA and Section membership worthwhile.
