    KBA and KLS teaming up to host Pro Bono Summit in December

    In an effort to address the growing need for pro bono representation, the Kansas Bar Association and Kansas Legal Services are teaming up to host a special event focused ongrowingthe number of and better coordination among all pro bono providers in Kansas. The "Pro Bono Summit: Partnerships in the Public Interest” will be held from 2-5 p.m. on Dec. 17 at the Kansas Bar Association in Topeka. The keynote speaker for this event is Justice Dan Biles of the Kansas Supreme Court.

     

    The KBA and KLS will bring together attorneys, judges, law firm pro bono coordinators, committee and university pro bono chairs, law students and others interested in participating in a forum and reception to address the pro bono need in Kansas and to celebrate those that have volunteered to help meet that need. Summit topics includewhat a broad pro bono partnership program in Kansas can accomplish, new issues and programs in pro bono, and the benefits gained by individual attorneys and firms providing pro bono.

     

    A majority of pro bono cases in Kansas are coordinated by KLS. "For the first eight and a half months of 2014, pro bono attorneys have provided advice to 271 low-income Kansans,” said Marilyn M. Harp, KLS executive director. "Pro bono attorneys have opened 63 cases and completed 60 cases.”

     

    The need, however, far outweighs the volunteers available to fill the need. Harp said that in one month alone, KLS had applications from 65 people who would have been eligible for a pro bono attorney -- had one been available.

     

    The KBA and KLShope to expand an understanding of current pro bono activities in Kansas and to start a discussion about how all providers can work together to share resources and ideas to address the ongoing and increasing need.

     

    If you would like to attend this event, please RSVP with Anne Woods, KBA public services manager, at awoods@ksbar.org, or online at http://www.ksbar.org/2014ProBonoSummit. To learn more about pro bono in Kansas, visit http://bit.ly/probono_ks.

    APPLY NOW FOR COMMISSION BIG GAME PERMITS

    APPLY NOW FOR COMMISSION BIG GAME PERMITS

    Oct. 30, 2014

    Eligible non-profits can draw a deer, elk, or antelope permit for fundraising

    PRATT ­– Applications for Commission Big Game Permits are being accepted now by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT). Any Kansas-based nonprofit organization that actively promotes wildlife conservation and the hunting and fishing heritage is eligible to apply through Jan. 1, 2015. Once drawn, vouchers can be sold to the highest bidder to raise money for the organization’s conservation efforts, with 15 percent of the sales going directly to the chapter and 85 percent going to KDWPT to be spent on mutually agreed-upon conservation projects. If Kansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry (KSHFH) receives a permit, not less than 15 percent of the funds raised are remitted to KDWPT with 85 percent staying with KSHFH.

    A total of seven permits may be issued, including one elk, one antelope and up to seven deer, depending upon the preferences of the drawn organizations. Organizations that draw a permit must first pay KDWPT the permit fee, and then they will be issued a voucher. The final recipient of the voucher then remits the voucher to KDWPT’s licensing section for the actual big game permit. Permits may be issued to resident or nonresident hunters and are valid in management units and seasons listed on the permits.

    Only one permit per organization will be awarded; however, individual chapters of the same organization may receive permits in the same year. A chapter or organization is eligible to receive only one Commission Big Game permit in a three-year period.

    To apply, organizations must submit an application that includes a copy of their 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, articles of incorporation, and mission statement, as well as the organization’s preference for an elk, antelope or deer permit. Applications can be downloaded from KDWPT’s website, www.ksoutdoors.com; enter “2015 Commission Big Game Permit Application” in the search box. Mail applications to Sheila Kemmis, Commission Secretary, Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, 512 SE 25 Ave., Pratt, KS 67124.
