TIPS Fellows

By Madeline Meacham

Ten years ago, a group of longstanding members of TIPS saw a need for other long-term, committed TIPS members to have an opportunity to connect with old friends, to make an additional financial commitment to the Section, and to continue to find creative ways to contribute to the Section. Thus, TIPS Fellows was born. There are currently over 90 Fellows. Fellows meet regularly to review pending projects, issues and budget. Fellows also look forward to an annual dinner, which provides an opportunity to visit with TIPS friends in a relaxed, intimate setting. Fellows commit to giving $200 per year to the Fellows fund. When an individual’s contributions reach a total of $2,000, the contributor is recognized as a Life Fellow. The funds collected have been used for a variety of great projects, including contributing to a fund that provides resources to attorneys struggling with substance abuse, sponsoring receptions with Leadership Academy, and Young Lawyers In addition, the Fellows reached out to first-time attendees at the 2019 Spring Meeting, as a first step in developing an extended mentoring program, and worked with council to offer assistance where council or the Fellows have identified a need.
