The chairs and vice chairs of the MBA's 17 sections and Young
Lawyers Division have been selected and will convene council
meeting beginning in September. Section councils were invited to an
orientation program at the MBA offices in mid-August. The program
provided the information and direction necessary for the volunteer
leaders to hit the ground running with the onset of the 2012-13
association year on Sept. 1.
"This diverse and talented group of section council leaders will
shoulder much of the important work of the MBA. Section council
work is essential to the MBA objective of promoting excellence in
the profession, and the section council leaders are crucial to that
mission," said MBA President Robert L. Holloway Jr.
Aside from publishing relevant articles in their practice areas
in the MBA's publications and planning timely CLE offerings,
section leaders sit on the governing body of the association -- the
MBA House of Delegates. Section leadership also has a crucial role
in developing the MBA's legislative positions.

various press releases issued on their respective appointments.
