Resolution to Establish the Michael H. Neumark CALL Scholarship & Development Fund of the Cincinnati Bar Foundation
The following Resolution was adopted by the Cincinnati Bar Foundation Board of Trustees at its regular meeting on April 21, 1998, amended on October 6,2003 and on June 22, 2005:
BE IT RESOLVED that the Cincinnati Bar Foundation hereby established the Michael H. Neumark Cincinnati Academy of Leadership for Lawyers (CALL) Scholarship & Development Fund effective the 21st day of April 1998. This fund will use its income and principal to support the purposes of the CALL program. CALL program, alumni, corporate, law firm and individual donations are encouraged to further the purposes of CALL. Unless designated, no donations to the Cincinnati Bar Foundation will be added to the CALL Scholarship & Development Fund, other than by board resolution.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that in the event the CALL program ceases to exist for a period of three consecutive years, then at the discretion of the Trustees of the Cincinnati Bar Foundation the entire amount of the fund will be used for programs with a similar purpose.
The Cincinnati Bar Foundation established a “Designated Justice Fund” in tribute to William A. McClain, for a scholarship in his name to be awarded by the Black Lawyers Association of Cincinnati. This restricted fund will use its income to award an annual scholarship to an African-American/Black student and Hamilton County, Ohio resident attending any ABA accredited law school. The scholarship will be awarded jointly with the Black Lawyers Association of Cincinnati (BLAC). The BLAC will select the recipient based on demonstrated leadership potential and dedication to the community. This scholarship is an appropriate tribute to Judge McClain, who has inspired and befriended young attorneys establishing themselves in the legal profession. Unless designated by the contributor, no donations to the Cincinnati Bar Foundation will be added to the William A. McClain Scholarship Fund, other than by board resolution. The board of trustees, by resolution, reserves the right to use principal to support purposes stated, if necessary.
