    Hello Government Sub-Committee Members - Welcome to the Spring edition of the Newsletter.
    The GS leadership has been working diligently alongside the OWBA leadership to present the Annual Conference, hosted at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center on May 11 & 12, 2017.  This year's conference will include keynote addresses from Lucy Helm, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Starbucks, and Carrie Hightman, Executive Vice President & Chief Legal Officer, NiSource Inc., and panel discussions with local lawyers, judges, business and community leaders.  The Conference will tackle some of the most significant issues facing the legal profession, including the persistent gender gap at the highest levels of leadership in the public and private sectors, and will include a report on Gender and the Law from the Women's Fund of Central Ohio.

    On Thursday evening, May 11, 2017 the Government Subcommittee is proud to present the Honoring Women in Government Reception at this year's annual Conference beginning at 5:30 pm.  The event will feature the Honorable Ohio Supreme Court Justice Sharon L. Kennedy as the keynote speaker. 

    Justice Kennedy will explore the theme of the conference, "Critical Conversations and Courageous Leadership" through her own experience and offer her observations on ways women can and do ascend to the board room, the bench and beyond.

    It is our hope that you join us for Conference and the Reception, and you invite one of your colleagues to join us.  The information offered is too valuable to keep a secret, so please commit the time to advance your career, grow your professional relationships and invest in yourself.  The OWBA Conference is a great place to stretch your potential this Spring!

    Introducing.... Butler County Common Pleas Court, Division of Domestic Relations Magistrate Maria McBride and Ohio Attorney General Assistant Section Chief Ryan Richardson:  our latest additions to the GS Leadership        

    The OWBA GS is pleased to announce our numbers are growing, and the future looks bright for our members.  Following an outreach effort earlier this year, and the expression of interest from these emerging leaders, Magistrate McBride is joining the GS as a co-chair for the 2017-2018 year; and Assistant Section Chief Richardson will be joining the ranks as a GS Leadership Liaison.
    Both women offer much in the way of experience. We encourage you all to welcome them personally when you see them at the conference, or by simply picking up the phone to get to know them. We are confident that the OWBA will see continued growth under their leadership.  Their resumes are impressive and their personalities powerfully positive!  Thank you ladies for volunteering to serve, lead, and grow with the OWBA!
