Midyear Council Meeting
The Midyear Council Meeting was held on
January 23-25 at Grenelefe Resort and was at-
tended by more than 60 Section members. The

agenda was lengthy and varied.
On Sunday, the Council considered a report of
the Special Committee on Section Organization
(SCOSO) which recommended substantial
changes in the Section's committee structure.
The Council approved the recommendation, with
minor changes. I shall not describe the new struc-
ture here, because you should have received by
now a committee preference form which reflects
the new structure.
However, there is one significant change to
which I want to call your attention. The Council
voted to abolish the Division of State Ad-
ministrative Law as presently constituted. (Since
this change will require an amendment of the By-
Laws, the action is subject to the approval of the
Board of Governors and of the Section member-
ship at the Annual Meeting.) At present the Chair-
man of the Division is appointed annually by the
Section Chairman and is an ex officio member of
the Council. Under the proposal, the Section
Chairman will continue to appoint a Council
member whose field of interest is state ad-
ministrative law. There will be a Committee on
State Administrative Law, and other committees
whose jurisdiction involves state administrative

matters (e.g., rulemaking) will have a vice-
chairman whose primary responsibility will be
state, as opposed to federal, law.
The purpose of this reorganization is to in-
crease the Section's activities at the state level by
seeking to integrate state matters into the overall
work of the Section. Adopting a committee struc-
ture for the Division, which has more than 150
members, would result in duplication of existing
committees and would tend to segregate con-
sideration of matters at the federal and state
levels, rather than facilitating an interchange of
views and experiences as to matters of common
interest. Under the new structure, the field of
state administrative law will continue to have a
Council member who is primarily concerned with
this field, but there will also be a separate com-
mittee chairman who will have overall respon-
sibility in this area, as well as vice-chairmen of
several committees, who will be charged with
responsibility in this area.
The Council believes that this structural
