    The Dayton Chapter of the Federal Bar Association (FBA) was recently honored by the FBA at its Annual Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. For the first time in FBA history, the FBA recognized two chapters – Dayton and Chicago – for going above and beyond for their respective members and communities. Magistrate Judge Michael J. Newman, 2013 Dayton Chapter President, received the award on behalf of the Chapter, accompanied by Jeff Cox, Chapter President-Elect; Erin Rhinehart, the Chapter's National Delegate; and Glen McMurry, Immediate Past President of the Dayton Chapter.

    In addition to being recognized as Chapter of the Year, the Dayton Chapter took home more awards than any other FBA chapter in the county. In particular, the Dayton Chapter received the following awards:

    1. 2014 Chapter of the Year

    2. 2014 Ilene and Michael Shaw Public Service Award, for the Dayton Chapter's "Younger Lawyer Public Service Initiative" program.

    3. 2014 Outstanding Newsletter Award, for the Dayton Chapter's semi-annual newsletter, On the Merits

    4. Recognition for a 10% increase in membership over the past year

    The Dayton Chapter is extremely proud to be the sole recipient of the Ilene and Michael Shaw Public Service Award – the FBA's national public service award. This award is made possible by the generous contributions of Ilene and Michael Shaw, and seeks to recognize the FBA Chapter that has offered exemplary public service programs within its community. In addition to the national recognition, the award includes $5,000 of seed money to plan, implement and continue public service programs. The Dayton Chapter is humbled by this recognition and is hard at work evaluating how best to use the money to better serve the Dayton community.

    "We are energized to continue our programming, outreach and innovations to continue to serve the needs of our local federal judiciary and attorneys as well as the citizens of the greater Dayton region who look to the Dayton federal court for assistance," said Cox. "We also are pleased to celebrate the election of Judge Newman to serve as the National President of the Federal Bar Association in 2016, and the election of Glen McMurry as Chair of the FBA's Younger Lawyers Division; his chairmanship will commence in 2018."
