Committees

Diversity

A message from the Chapter President:

On August 24, 2009, at its yearly Planning Session, the FBA Executive Board adopted the Diversity Task Force’s proposed Resolution.

The Diversity Task Force has now transitioned into a Diversity Committee that will oversee implementation of the Recommended Initiatives and Activities. In its first year, the Committee met its initial goals — to implement the short term recommendations set forth by the Task Force and to introduce two of the long term recommendations. The long term focus will be on: (1) law students and (2) attorneys who are establishing a federal court practice.

Please contact the Committee Co-chairs if you would like to continue in this effort, and I hope that you do, and/or if you know of someone who might be interested.
