The article says, "The practice of law is constantly and rapidly evolving, and as the practice changes, the needs of our members change, too. After years of searching and homing in on how the bar should shift focus to better meet the needs of its members, it was determined that moving into a new space would be the right move for the Indianapolis Bar Association and Foundation. Many volunteers have worked tirelessly to help secure this future home, including Dave Duncan. He went above and beyond in leading the process to identify the bar’s needs and negotiate the new lease."
