The Chairman's Corner

I have been a member of the Section for twenty years but did
not participate In its work until I was asked to chair one of its
committees.
  Realizing that this is the way most members who wish to be
active in the Section are given the opportunity to do so, your
Council decreed that each of the Section's committees be di-
vided into divisions to be chaired by a Chairman and Vice-Chair-
man. The result, we hope, will be to involve more committee
members in the work of the committees and make the commit-
tees more effective.
  In the past, committees were only asked to submit an annual
report. While this is still a requirement, we are encouraging com-
mittees to meet, to conduct workshops and to become involved
in the administration of the Section's affairs. The Committee on
Land Use, Planning and Zoning just met in Houston during the
ABA Midyear Meeting and held its first seminar. The Elections
Committee will meet in New Orleans next summer during the
Annual Meeting and will have a program on reapportionment. To
involve committees in the administration of the Section's affairs,
I have been asking committees to utilize their expertise in re-
viewing and responding to requests for comments both from the
ABA and the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform
State Laws.
  We realize that not everyone among the 5,000 members in our
Section wishes to be active, but for those who are so Inclined,
we welcome their participation and invite suggestions from all of
our members as to how the opportunities to be more active can
be explained.
  I am looking forward to greeting personally every member of
the Section who attends our Annual Meeting this August In New
Orleans.
                                          SAMUEL GORLICK
                                          Chairman

      Nominating Committee Appointed

   Chairman Samuel Gorlick has appointed a Nominating
   Committee to prepare a slate of Officers and Council
   Members upon which the Section will vote at its forth-
   coming Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
     A. Berry Cappello, who practices law in Santa Barbara,
   California, is Chairman of the Nominating Committee.
   The other Committee members are James Baird of Chi-
   cago, William Peter Doren of Traverse City, Michigan,
   Donald R. Hodgman and Carl K. Newton, both of Los
   Angeles.


Highlights of Upcoming
1981 Annual Meeting in
New Orleans

There is still time to make reservations for the 1981 Annual
Section Meeting which will be held at the Royal Orleans Aug-
ust 8-11. First Vice-Chairman Manly Mumford of Chicago, who
is in charge of this year's program, has arranged a series of
stimulating topics of interest to both the private and govern-
mental practitioner. These include sessions on public trans-
portation law, under the direction of Lawrence L. Thompson of
Atlanta; the law of state and local government finance under
the direction of Gerard Fernandez, Jr., of New York City; elec-
tion law and reapportionment, a joint program with the ABA's
Special Committee on Election Law and Voter Participation,
under the direction of David E. Cardwell of Lakeland, Florida;
and Living and Litigating under Section 1983 of the Civil Rights
Act, under the direction of Richard Carlisle of Independence,
Missouri.
  In addition, Shirley Siegal, Solicitor General of New York, is
putting together a joint program with the Young Lawyers Divi-
sion on employment in the public sector and David Callies of
Monoa, Hawaii, is preparing a session on land use law. Finally,
the Section's program will conclude with Bob Freilich's always
eagerly awaited overview of the past year's major develop-
ments in urban, state and local government law. Bob's analysis
is invariably informative, stimulating and provocative. It is
always a fitting climax to the Section's meeting.
