February 17, 2010

James Dimos, a partner at Frost Brown Todd, is one of only nine lawyers from the United States to be nominated as a member of the American Bar Association (ABA) Board of Governors.  "I am excited by the opportunity to serve the American Bar Association as a member of its Board of Governors."  Dimos said. "Our profession and the Association face challenging times and I look forward to working with lawyers from across the country in an effort to address those challenges."

Nominees to the ABA Board of Governors, which oversees association administration and policy implementation,  will be presented for election by the House of Delegates in August.  If elected, they will serve three-year terms, starting immediately after the conclusion of the 2010 Annual Meeting.  The nominees and the constituencies they are nominated to represent, are:

Cheryl I. Niro, Chicago, District 7, Illinois and Ohio;
Edith G. Osman, Miami, District 8, Florida and Texas;
James S. Hill, Bismarck, N.D., District 10, North and South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming;
James F. Carr, Littleton, Colo, District 11, Colorado, Arizona and Oklahoma;
Carlos A. Rodriguez Vidal, San Juan, P.R., District 13, Puerto Rico, Alaska, Montana and Oregon;
James Dimos, Indianapolis, District 18, Indiana, Maryland and Washington;
Mary Ell Coster Williams, Bethesda, Md., ABA Section of Public Contract Law;
Peter A. Winograd, Albuquerque, N.M., ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar; and
Michelle A. Behnke, Madison, Wis., Woman Member-at-Large.

In the next year, the board will consist of 40 members, and revert to 38 members when the treasurer and secretary assume their posts.  Six of the nine Board of Governors nominees will represent regional districts, two will represent substantive legal practice areas and one will be a woman member‑at‑large.
