Glen R. McMurry

Glen McMurry formally joined the FBA in August 2010, shortly before his election as president of the Dayton, Ohio, Chapter. At that time, the Dayton Chapter’s membership hovered between 20 and 30 members, and the chapter hosted only one event per year. With the encouragement of his local federal judges, he undertook to formalize and grow the chapter, serving as president for three consecutive terms. At the end of his final term in October 2013, the Dayton Chapter had adopted new bylaws, was servicing approximately 115 members, and was hosting/sponsoring approximately l5 to 20 social and CLE events per year. This resurgence culminated with the Dayton Chapter’s receipt of the Chapter of the Year award at the FBA’s 2014 Annual Meeting and Convention in Providence, Rhode Island.

McMurry also serves as member of the YLD national board of directors. In 2011, he assisted the YLD board by authoring our current YLD bylaws and was ultimately selected to be the national secretary in 2013. He currently serves as the national treasurer and recently researched and authored the YLD’s report and recommendation regarding the FBA’s modification of the current YLD age and years of practice membership restrictions. McMurry also happily serves on the Government Relations Committee, The Federal Lawyer editorial board, and the 2016 Annual Meeting Planning Committee.
