    Superior attorney elected to State Bar Board of Governors

    MADISON, April 25, 2003 - Attorney Kenneth A. Knudson was elected to a two-year term on the State Bar of Wisconsin Board of Governors, the body responsible for managing and directing the affairs and activities of the statewide association.

    "I look forward to serving the interests of the people and lawyers in northwestern Wisconsin," said Knudson, who beat Attorney Howard J. Bichler by a vote of 72 to 59. "This is also an opportunity to work with other board members on statewide legal matters," said Knudson, who helped implement the mock trial program in the Superior area.

    Created by Supreme Court Rule, the State Bar is governed by a 48-member Board of Governors consisting of six officers, 34 members elected by State Bar members from the association's 16 districts, five elected by divisions of the State Bar, and three non-lawyers appointed by the Supreme Court. As policy makers, the Board of Governors and officers influence the future of the legal profession and the delivery of legal services in Wisconsin.

    Knudson is past president of the Douglas County Bar Association, and a member of the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers. He has been involved in a number of State Bar programs and was named the State Bar's Law Related Education Attorney of the Year Award in 1993.

    The State Bar of Wisconsin is the mandatory professional association, created by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, for attorneys who hold a law license in Wisconsin. With more than 20,000 members, the State Bar aids the courts in improving the administration of justice, provides continuing legal education for its members, and assists Wisconsin lawyers in carrying out initiatives to educate the public about the legal system.
