I am extremely happy to announce I was elected to the Georgia State Bar Executive Committee on Saturday, June 19 during the Annual Meeting of the State Bar at Amelia Island Plantation, Florida. The State Bar of Georgia is comprised of approximately 40,000 lawyers. The Board of Governors, on which I have served since 2002, consists of 150 of those lawyers who have been elected by their respective constituents to represent them on bar matters. The Executive Committee of the Georgia State Bar is comprised of 14 State Bar members also elected by the lawyers of the State of Georgia. So it is an absolute honor to have been chosen by my peers and colleagues to represent them on the Georgia State Bar Executive Committee. I look forward to serving and to continung to protect the rights of Georgia citizens by keeping our precious Georgia Civil Justice System’s promise of Justice For All.
Below is a short press release issued by the President of Georgia Trial Lawyers Association about my election to the Executive Committee:
Former GTLA president Robin Clark was elected to the State Bar Executive Committee on Saturday. Congratulations to Robin. Already on the Executive Committee are GTLA members Lester Tate, serving as President Elect and Ken Shigley, serving as Treasurer. All three individuals are great voices at the State Bar for issues of concern to GTLA members.
We all owe them a great thanks for their willingness to serve on the State Bar Executive Committee and for their great support of issues important to GTLA.
GTLA remains ever vigilant that broad coalitions are needed to protect access to a proper Civil Justice System for the citizens of this State.
