Later this month, Dana Tippin Cutler
will be inducted into the Gallery of Legal Pioneers Wall of Fame for the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis (BAMSL).   The ceremony celebrates BAMSL members who have made tremendous contributions to the legal profession as pioneering "famous firsts," who paved the way for countless others to achieve success in the Missouri legal community.  Dana is being recognized for having successfully completed her service as the first ever African-American woman President of The Missouri Bar.  According to BAMSL, the inclusion of honorees' photos on the Legal Pioneer Wall of Fame serves "as an eternal reminder of their contributions."  Kudos to Dana!!


Dana has also begun serving as a member of the ABA House of Delegates, the policy-making body in which the control and administration of the American Bar Association is vested.  Action taken by the House of Delegates on specific issues becomes official ABA policy


Keith Cutler recently defended a multi-million-dollar police tasing case in a week-long federal jury trial in Kansas City.   Although the plaintiff did recover, it was a hard-fought case with interesting legal and medical issues on both sides.   Post-trial motions are pending.


Keith also recently began his term as an elected member of the Board of Directors of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association (KCMBA).   The Board of Directors is the managing body of the KCMBA, and is responsible for overseeing the Association's affairs.    Keith previously served on the Board of Directors in the 1990s and again in the 2000s, as well as having served as President of the KCMBA Young Lawyers Section.   Congratulations to Keith on his election!


For the second consecutive year, Dana and Keith were invited as guest speakers to deliver a joint presentation to the National Association of Bar Executives during the Mid-Year Meeting of the American Bar Association.   At this year's Meeting, held in Las Vegas, Dana and Keith spoke on enhancing the relationship between executive directors of bar associations and bar association presidents.   By all accounts, the presentation was well received.
