    Two Madison attorneys have accepted nominations to run for 2009 State Bar president-elect. James C. Boll Jr. is a corporate attorney for Madison Gas & Electric Co. and James R. Troupis is a partner with Michael Best & Friedrich, practicing in the areas of general civil trial and appellate litigation. Both candidates were selected by the State Bar Nominating Committee, chaired by Tom Basting, of Madison.

    Nominees for treasurer are Margaret Wrenn Hickey and Kevin J. Lyons, both of Milwaukee, Nominees for Judicial Council are Mary E. Burke, Madison, and Tom Bertz, Stevens Point.

    ”I am pleased to be nominated by the Board of Governors to run for State Bar President-elect,” says Boll. “As a member of the Board of Governors and chair of the Member Benefits Advisory Committee, I have developed ideas regarding restructuring our organization to better connect with our members and to convey the benefits of bar membership. I look forward to discussing these ideas with bar members over the next several months.”

    “This is a time of extraordinary change and ever more difficult challenges,” says Troupis. “There is, as a result, an ever growing need for the skills and courage lawyers bring to protecting and advancing the cause of liberty and freedom. I am honored to accept this nomination and to have the opportunity to run for President-elect of the State Bar of Wisconsin.”

    The president-elect serves a one-year term before becoming president. The treasurer serves two years, and the Judicial Council representative serves three years. Members interested in running for one of these offices can file a petition, which must be signed by 100 active Bar members, with the State Bar by Feb. 1. To receive a petition, contact Jan Marks at org jmarks wisbar wisbar jmarks org or call (608) 250-6106, or (800) 444-9404, ext. 6106.
