Joining some 300 other emerging leaders of lawyer organizations from across the country at the American Bar Association's Bar Leadership Institute (BLI), March 11-13, was Michael R. Wolford president-elect of the Monroe County Bar Association.

The BLI is held annually in Chicago for incoming officials of local and state bars, special focus lawyer organizations, and bar foundations. The seminar provides the opportunity to confer with ABA officials, bar leader colleagues, executive staff, and others on the operation of such associations.

Wolford joined ABA President Dennis W. Archer of Detroit and ABA President-Elect Robert J. Grey, Jr. of Richmond in sessions on bar governance, finance, communications and planning.

Various ABA entities briefed the participants on resources available from the ABA for local, state, national, and specialty bar associations and foundations.

The BLI is sponsored by the ABA Standing Committee on Bar Activities and Services and the ABA Division for Bar Services as part of the association's long-standing goal of fostering partnerships with state and local bars and related organizations.
