BLACK ENTERTAINMENT LAWYERS' ASSOCIATION FORMED AT BMA CONFERENCE West of Jones, Michael & Cherot, NY; and Kendall Minter of Burns, Jackson, Miller, Summit and Jacoby, NY; outline the purpose and goals of the Association to be: The establishment of a nationwide network of black entertainment lawyers to provide legal services to the BMA and its members; to establish a referral system for legal representation and a resource bank for providing information to students, groups, non-profit and civic organizations involved in the entertainment industry; and to serve as an industry watchdog in protecting the rights of blacks within the entertainment community. "The formation of this association can work as an effective conduit between Black lawyers interested in entering the entertainment industry and Black artists seeking qualified attorneys and hopefully such goals can be facilitated with the support of the BMA," stated Mr. Arnold. The Black Entertainment Lawyers Association will interface with the BMA, the National Bar Association, the National Conference of Black Lawyers and the American Bar Association. The Association is the first of its kind and signals a new level of achievement and recognition of Black professional competence and dedication in an industry where legal representation has only rarely been entrusted to Black lawyers. The organizers credit the BMA Founders' Conference with having created a positive environment in which a long needed concept and organization of this nature could germinate and mature into a reality. For further information, contact Kendall Minter, (212) 980-3200. Second Annual Conference The Second Annual BMA Conference will be held in Washington, D.C. at the Sheraton Washington Hotel over the weekend of June 26-30, 1980. Details will be coming soon.
