The Arkansas Bar Association (ArkBar) recently revealed its new logo and its new governance structure. Several people from Southeast Arkansas are on the Board of Trustees.


“As we transition and move the association forward, we believe the new logo reflects our dedicated and diverse membership,” Karen K. Hutchins, executive director, said in a July 2 news release.


ArkBar is moving forward to meet future statewide expectations by rolling out its new governance structure. The new governance structure creates a single Board of Trustees consisting of 15 statewide districts. The new trustees were elected in May and began serving at the inaugural meeting of the Board of Trustees during the association’s virtual annual meeting in June, according to the release.


“The new governance structure will allow the association to be more responsive, as the legal profession continues to meet the challenges that require quicker responses and increased technology in the practice of law,” Hutchins said.


The new logo was designed by Mangan Holcomb Partners.


ArkBar announced the members who have been elected to lead the association this year.
