Meet your new Board of Governors: Bryan Sanger
Bryan Sanger, partner at Mandel, Mandel, Marsh, Sudekum & Sanger in St. Louis, was elected as The Missouri Bar Board of Governors District 11 representative earlier this year, and he has several goals for his time on the board.
This summer, Missouri lawyers, voting in districts throughout the state, elected four new members – Sanger, Michael L. Miller, Hon. Corey Moon, and Mark J. Welker– to the 45-member Board of Governors of The Missouri Bar. Board members are elected to serve two-year terms, which begin with the bar’s Annual Meeting in late September.
Here, Sanger shares what he hopes to accomplish while serving on the board.
What made you interested in joining the Board of Governors?
Coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe that we have an opportunity as a profession to learn from the accommodations and changes to the practice of law due to COVID-19 restrictions. Implementing some of these changes permanently will increase the quality of life of lawyers, and I believe it’s important that we not miss this opportunity. I hope that I am able to advocate for changes that make the practice of law more efficient and more enjoyable.
What part of being on the board are you most excited about?
I am most excited about meeting members from across the state and making new friendships.
What do you want the lawyers you represent to know?
I want them to know that I will advocate and support changes that make the practice of law more equitable, effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Quality of life for Missouri lawyers will be top of mind with me.
What do you enjoy most about The Missouri Bar?
Speaking from my prior experience as a member of The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers Section, I very much enjoy the relationships and time spent with lawyers from across the state. Learning perspectives from lawyers with different backgrounds and locations is informative, and I believe that helps me be a better leader.
