Section leadership begins work for 2012-13 association year MBA officer slate

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.
