Iowa State Bar Association will host a delegation comprised of five members of
Kosovo’s Parliament Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. at bar
headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa. ISBA members who would like to meet the
delegates are welcome to attend the meeting.
delegation, which will spend a week in Des Moines, is interested in learning
about the basic organization of the association, its mission and such things as
services provided to members and the public and the association’s process for
determining legislative issues and prioritizing and working to get those issues
passed into law, says Dennis Dietz, chair of the Kosovo Committee for Iowa
Sister States. Iowa Sister States is hosting the delegation through the Open
World Leadership Program.
delegation's interest in the ISBA’s work dovetails with their overarching
interest in how state government is structured and the processes that make it
work. Their focus is on accountable governance. As such, they will be meeting
with a variety of organizations during their visit.
you plan to attend the meeting, please let Dwight Dinkla, ISBA executive
director, know you’ll be attending. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
