The IndyBar offers its members more than 20 interest groups representing both practice areas and demographics, in addition to various committees that are responsible for a wide spectrum of IndyBar initiatives, programs and day-to-day association operations. Membership in sections and divisions and involvement on committees offers invaluable opportunities for networking, practice development and education.
Sections within the Indianapolis Bar Association represent a variety of practice areas. Sections are responsible for planning and presenting education programming, spearheading initiatives in both the legal community and beyond, providing resources and information for their section members and much more. All sections are governed by specific bylaws and are managed by an executive committee.
Section membership is open to all IndyBar members at a rate of $25 per group for basic membership or $75 per group for Plus CLE membership, which includes at least four one-hour brownbag CLE programs at no additional cost.
