BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors held its quarterly meeting in Charleston on December 8 with participation in person and by telephone conference call for the members located around the state.
The significant matters considered during the meeting included the review and approval of a clean audit and a Form 990 for the 2010-11 fiscal year presented by the Independent Auditor, the approval of an amended balanced budget for the current 2011-12 fiscal year, the selection of outstanding lawyers and judges for the 2012 class of Bar Foundation Fellows and discussion of a report from the Strategic Planning Committee.
The Board also reviewed a sincere expression of gratitude and appreciation from WVU Law School student Michael Nissim-Sabat, the recipient of the Bar Foundation’s Public Service Scholarship.
BAR FOUNDATION PROPERTY FOR SALE
The Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors has taken action to place its buildings and property in Charleston, situated at 2006 Kanawha Blvd., East and at 2008 Kanawha Blvd., East, on the market for sale.
