Mission

For the Indy Attorneys Network, we have one main goal, that is, to promote the development of professional and personal relationships among the members of the Indianapolis Bar Association (IndyBar). While this idea is simple, we believe it is powerful. Our goal is to create open dialogue and build new professional relationships between IndyBar members. Our hope is that the relationships fostered by our networking group will positively impact the lives of our members as well as the whole Indianapolis legal community.

A Message from the Section Chair

Joseph Hankins

“Like most attorneys, I always enjoy meeting lawyers from other practice areas and interests, but while it is easy to say "go network," it can be a daunting task. To address this problem, the Indy Attoneys Network Section-a group that solely focuses on networking amongst attorneys-was created.

The Indy Attorneys Network is a voluntary group that all IndyBar members are eligible and welcome to join; however, only those IndyBar members who join the group will have access to the networking events. We provide a number of exciting activities for promoting networking among our members.

Monthly Match-Ups
In addition to making networking easier and more fun, the Indy Attorneys Network also allows you to network with someone new on a regular basis with monthly match-ups. Two members of the section are randomly paired up each month via an e-mail. The e-mail contains contact information in which the pair decides on the meeting at the location/time of their choice. We hope in-house counsel, solo practitioners, judges, public practitioners, senior attorneys, junior attorneys, and all attorneys in-between will participate in the activities, but we also recognize that there may be times when one might need to opt-out of the monthly match-ups. If that happens, please let me or a committee member know. You can rejoin the monthly match-ups at any time.

Group Meetings
In addition to the monthly match-ups, Indy Attorneys Network will offer guidance in various aspects of networking. Some of these aspects include networking tips and techniques from skilled attorney networkers or coaches, ethical aspects of attorney marketing or networking, and practical tips and advice on networking. Of course, social events for the entire group to have fun and network are included.

I am always open to suggestions for improving the section, so I encourage you to contact me with your ideas or questions. ”
