Former American Bar Association treasurer and past president of the Kentucky Bar Association, Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson III, has been selected as president-elect nominee at the ABA Midyear Meeting. It is expected that in August 2010, Robinson will become the president-elect for one year leading to his one-year term as president, which will begin in August 2011.
Robinson told the House of Delegates that the ABA faces a variety of challenges, and that “we’ll need to be agile, creative and maintain a healthy sense of urgency” to address them.
“I intend to promote volunteer lawyer service in the organized bar at every opportunity” something that the ABA will need more of “in the troubled days ahead,” Robinson said.
Robinson is the member-in-charge of the northern Kentucky offices of Frost Brown Todd, a regional law firm of more than 400 lawyers with offices in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, West Virginia.
He has served as chair of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, chair of the Cincinnati USA Partnership for Economic Development and, for seven years, as a member of the ABA Board of Governors.
