OFFICE OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OPENS IN
LINCOLN
A new era in the history of the Neb-
raska State Bar Association opened Jan-
uary 1 with the hiring of an Executive
Director.
Filling the new position is Burton
Berger, formerly known to many Bar mem-
bers as a coordinator at the Nebraska
Center for Continuing Education, where
he worked with the Great Plains Federal
Tax Institute. Burton was chosen for the
position by a special committee under
authorization from the House of Delegates
at the last Annual Meeting.
The new office is at 1019 Sharp Build-
ing in Lincoln, with telephone number of
477-7717(area code 402). All Bar Associa-
tion members are invited to drop in for
a cup of coffee and a chance to become
acquainted with the new office when in
Lincoln.
LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM
Tom Davies, our genial, hard-working
president-elect, has been busy develop-
ing our legislative program for the
coming year.
While the program is going well, Tom
has suggested that any member with legis-
lation in mind should contact the chair-
man of the appropriate committee.
For a good legislative program, we
should have all proposed legislation
approved by the necessary committees
and in the hands of key legislators
by fall. We can then obtain sponsors
for the bills and get them introduced
on the first legislative day, Tom
pointed out.

MID-YEAR MEETING SET FOR JUNE 12
This year's Mid-Year Meeting will
be held June 12 in the Cornhusker
Hotel in Lincoln, according to Bert
Overcash, chairman of the House of
Delegates.
It may well turn out to be the
most important mid-year meeting in
the history of the Association, Bert
said. Six reports of committee and
other activities of the Association,
all requiring some kind of formal
action, are on the agenda for the
morning session.
One major decision confronting the
delegates will be consideration of a
new set of Rules and Bylaws for the
Nebraska State Bar. These have been
under development by a special com-
mittee for a number of years, and are
now ready for presentation to the
Court if this is approved by the House.
Another major topic is a new budget
for the Association. Details are
given in the President's Message,inside.
Other matters facing the delegates
include consideration of a proposed
new Minimum Fee Schedule for the Assoc-
iation, possible adoption of the re-
port of the Bar-News Media Committee,
the position of the Bar on Proposition
No. 9 on Judicial Reform, and support
needed to further the work of a new
Committee on a Law Complex Building
at the University of Nebraska.
During the afternoon session, mem-
bers attending will have an opportunity
to hear presentations on the Tax Reform
Act of 1969.
All members of the Association are
welcome and are urged to attend any
session.
