  3. Indy Attorneys Network CLE and Networking Social Thursday, May 4, 2017 5:30-7:30 at Big Woods Brewery in Speedway (Group): Since the deadline to partner with this social already passed, the individuals within the section and the section can market this to encourage attendance, but it will not be a formal partnership.
  4. Bar Foundation Gala Contribution (Group): Does the section want to make a donation or put together a basket?  Decided to reach out to Cat to see what she would be able to do, and if we could not secure a tangible item then will simply make a donation.  
  5. IndyBar Listserve (Group): Email from Deneen will come to explain the proper use of the listserv. Cate mentioned potential other uses; this will be a continued item of emphasis moving forward.
  6. IndyBar Forms Library (Cate): It was discussed how the forms library could be used for our group. The difficult part is that sports and entertainment span so many areas of law. Nonetheless, the section will be encouraged to start to utilize the forms library.
  7. Other business
