SECTION CREATES ADVISORY BOARD

In light of the deep commitment shown by the Section’s leaders over the years, the Section has adopted a charter that would permit the Executive Committee to form an Advisory Board consisting of past Chairs. One of the great difficulties faced by any Bar Association is the loss of institutional memory, which too often leads to the periodic reinvention of the wheel, or projects fading before fruition because those invigorating and leading them leave their post after a year. We believe that the Advisory Board will be a means to preserve institutional memory and worthwhile projects, and that it will allow us to move more expeditiously toward tangible, working, achievements. The Advisory Board Charter can be found here.
