Meet your new Board of Governors: Lauren Collins
Lauren C. Collins, a litigation lawyer for AAA – The Auto Club Group and an adjunct professor at Saint Louis University School of Law, was appointed as The Missouri Bar Board of Governors District 9 (St. Louis County) representative earlier this year.
This summer, Missouri lawyers, voting in districts throughout the state, elected four new members – Bryan Sanger, Michael L. Miller, Hon. Corey Moon, and Mark J. Welker – to the 45-member Board of Governors of The Missouri Bar. Collins was appointed to fill a District 9 vacancy from earlier this year.
Board members are elected to serve two-year terms, which begin with the bar’s Annual Meeting in late September.
Here, Collins shares what she hopes to accomplish while serving on the board.
What made you interested in joining the Board of Governors?
I served on The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers’ Section from 2015 until this year. I wanted to continue my service with the bar and was fortunate that there was an open vacancy at the same time I was aging off of YLS.
What part of being on the board are you most excited about?
I am most excited continuing the work I started while on YLS. I am eager to get to work.
What do you want the lawyers you represent to know?
I want the lawyers that I represent to know that I am here for them! If there is anything that they are concerned about regarding the practice of law or related to bar activities, they should always feel free to contact me.
What do you enjoy most about The Missouri Bar?
I most enjoy meeting and networking with lawyers from all over the state. I have made some invaluable connections being active with The Missouri Bar, and I am forever grateful for that.
