BBKCC PARTNER STEPS DOWN AS PRESIDENT OF
THE INDIANA MUNICIPAL LAWYERS ASSOCIATION
Following a busy spring of Indiana Municipal Lawyers Association (IMLA) activities and events, BBKCC partner Ron Cross concluded his term of office as the president of IMLA at its annual June meeting held in Carmel, Indiana. The annual meeting was part of the IMLA’s Municipal Law Seminar XXXVI. Membership of the association consists of approximately three hundred fifty (350) Indiana attorneys whose practices involve, to some degree, the representation of Indiana cities, towns, township, counties and/or other public entities. Ron is pictured here receiving a plaque from Jodie Woods, IMLA Executive Director and General Counsel to Accelerating Indiana Municipalities (“AIM”), in recognition of his service in 2018-2019 as president of the association. Ron will continue to be a member of the IMLA Board of Directors serving in an ex-officio capacity as Immediate Past President.
In March of 2019, Ron, along with several other Indiana attorneys, attended the International Municipal Lawyers Associations mid-year four-day conference in Washington, D.C. That event was attended by over three hundred (300) municipal lawyers from across the nation who attended presentations on multiple legal challenges and issues facing municipalities in all states, covering topics including the ability of an agency to regulate cell tower and small communication devices; recent developments in the SEC’s governance of public debt issues; and updates on pertinent state and federal case law developments and US Supreme Court decisions.
If you or your public agency is in need of legal advice or consultation, contact Ron or any of the other BBKCC attorneys who represent municipalities in the greater Wayne County area, including attorneys Bob Bever, Adam Forrest, AJ Sickmann or Walt Chidester.
