Washington, D.C. (March 10, 2016) — The District of Columbia Bar, the second-largest unified bar in the country, has nominated Patrick McGlone, senior vice president, general counsel and chief compliance officer of Ullico Inc., to run for president-elect for a term beginning in July 2016. If elected, McGlone will serve as president of the D.C. Bar beginning in July 2017.
"I am thrilled to be chosen for this opportunity," McGlone said. "The D.C. Bar is a stellar organization. It has a 40-year record of providing superior service to its members, improving the legal system through innovation and enhancing access to justice for low-income D.C. residents. I look forward to describing my leadership skills and my record of service to the Bar members who will cast their votes this spring."
The D.C. Bar was created in 1972 by the D.C. Court of Appeals and has more than 100,000 members. The Bar maintains the ethical standards for D.C. lawyers, supports its members in their practice and protects the public.
Edward M. Smith, president and CEO of Ullico Inc., said, "We could not be more pleased that Pat McGlone has been nominated to run for president-elect. Pat has many years of service to the legal profession and the greater community. He has been a key contributor to Ullico's management team and would make a great Bar president."
