In the past few weeks, Bar Foundation Committees, which consist of Board of Directors members, have held meetings to recommend policies and decisions for the Board’s approval at its quarterly meeting on March 22.
The Grants Committee reviewed two grant applications regarding law related education projects, as well as considering the Bar Foundation Public Service Scholarship at the WVU College of Law.
The Nominating Committee looked at upcoming vacancies on the Board of Directors, as terms expire, and also the Officer positions for the 2012-13 fiscal year. Its report will be acted upon by the Board of Directors.
The Strategic Planning Committee discussed the various ongoing and planned Bar Foundation activities so that the necessary decisions can be made during the Board meeting.
