Annual Meeting
Epjoyed by All
The Section's Annual Meeting activities in Chi-
cago began the evening before the Business Meeting
with a wonderful reception hosted high atop the
Sears Tower by Council Member Peter Shannon's
firm, Keck, Mahin & Cate. Saturday, the Council
addressed a number of issues, electing the slate of
new officers and council members, as well as a sec-
ond delegate to the House of Delegates in anticipa-
tion of qualifying for a second delegate.
Three issues dominated the discussion. The first
involved whether our Section should support the
proposal to rescind the ABA's resolution in favor of
a right to obtain an abortion and to substitute a po-
sition of neutrality. The second involved whether our
Section should support the recommendation for cre-
ation of a Government and Public Sector Lawyers
Division as part of a series of measures to encourage
government lawyers to join the ABA. After a lively
discussion on the Council and from the floor, the
Council unanimously voted to oppose the recom-
mendation as currently formulated and to suggest
the creation of a temporary commission rather than
a new permanent bureaucracy. Finally, the Council
voted to support the Senior Lawyers' Division pro-
posal to reconstitute the Social Security Administra-
tion as an independent agency.
Saturday evening, the Section Dinner was held at
the Drake Hotel where old friends could meet again
and new members could become acquainted. After-
wards, many left together for a night on the town.
Sunday, Professor Michael Asimow introduced a
report that the Committee on Tax Procedures is
working on, which would recommend that the Trea-
sury Department avoid characterizing most of its tax
regulations as interpretive and should promulgate
them only after notice and comment. Then, there was
an excellent educational
