There are currently positions available on the Labor & Employment Law Section Executive Committee for 2015 and statements of interest are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, November 24. We talked to current Chair Elect Kevin Stella of Hall Render Killian Heath & Lyman PC to learn more about what Committee members can expect in 2015.
IndyBar: How long have you been on the Executive Committee and what was your role?
Stella: I've been on the Committee for several years. I served for a few years as an At- Large Member, then served as Secretary, Chair Elect, and in 2015 will be Chair.
IndyBar: What is your favorite part about being on the Executive Committee?
Stella: I enjoy getting to serve the Indianapolis labor and employment bar, and in this role I have had an opportunity to get to know many of my peers. It is very rewarding to serve alongside your peers and work toward a common objective.
IndyBar: What are your responsibilities as a member of the Executive Committee?
Stella: We really try to think about what would be helpful to the labor and employment bar in terms of education as well as philanthropic opportunities. In 2014 we worked to also offer an educational session to small employers who may not have had the resources for robust human resource expertise.
IndyBar: What can Executive Committee members expect for 2015?
Stella: We will continue to work to bring interesting and relevant CLEs to our members, and we hope to have opportunities to co-present with other sections in the IndyBar. Additionally, we will continue to focus efforts on connecting with law schools. The committee will also continue to consider what type of educational opportunities we might be able to host for smaller employers.
IndyBar: What advice would you give to anyone who is considering joining the Executive Committee?
Stella: It is a wonderful opportunity to get to know your peers well and to do so while helping the bar and community. We work well as a team and share the responsibilities, so you really can make a big contribution even though you are not able to commit dozens of hours to the committee.
