Mary Smith is President of the American Bar Association and is the first Native American woman in this role.Mary is an independent board member and former CEO of a $6 billion national healthcare organization, the Indian Health Service. She currently serves on the board of PTC Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTCT), a global biopharmaceutical company and on the board of HAI Group, a leading member-owned insurance company for the affordable housing industry. She is also vice chair of the VENG Group, a national consulting firm.

Students, faculty, administration and staff that attended and asked thoughtful questions. I want to particularly commend the student attendees who were the consummate professionals and carried themselves as future bar presidents themselves. I'm extremely proud to be a part of this sacred community and look forward to hosting future forums with bar leaders.
