A PRESIDENTIAL WELCOME
Katie Barrett Wiik
of the Federal Bar Association
Happy fall and welcome to another exciting year of Minnesota
Chapter activities! We appreciate your membership and look
forward to a year chock-full of insightful and timely CLE
programming, including our monthly lunches (occurring the
second Wednesday of each month, skipping December this year)
with engaging topics and speakers. We are energized to plan
and execute the 2024 editions of our Chapter’s hallmark events,
including our Federal Practice Seminar, Federal Judges’ Dinner
Dance, Court Camp, and much more. We are primed for another
bar year involving rich collaboration with our legal community’s
affinity bars and other bar-association partners in both our
social and substantive programming.
As I begin my service as Chapter President, I am inheriting a healthy and vibrant organization. This is primarily thanks to the impressive leadership of Adam Hansen last year and a number of outstanding Chapter presidents, from both the bench and bar, who served before him. The Chapter officers are aided by an extensive and talented slate of dozens of Chapter leaders—the vast majority remain in service as Chapter leaders this year—as all are devoted to making their own corner of our bar association the best it can be.
