Just wanted to let readers of this web log know that I am running for the position of State Bar Director for District 1, which covers Northeast Texas (it includes Bowie, Camp, Cass, Collin, Delta, Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Harrison, Henderson, Hopkins, Hunt, Kaufman, Lamar, Marion, Morris, Panola, Rains, Red River, Rockwall, Titus, Upshur, Van Zandt, and Wood counies).
I have been active on the Litigation Section council for several years now, including co-chairing some State Bar seminars (Litigation Update two weeks ago and am off to Austin tomorrow to co-chair the first meeting for the upcoming Advanced Personal Injury) and think I have gained some insights and experience on what the Bar does well and what it could perhaps do better for the members in our district.
