“We’re proud to play an active role supporting ISBA’s efforts to educate and advance Iowa’s legal community,” said Michael Thrall, Nyemaster Goode chairman. “As we embark on our next century, the perspective and knowledge of the ISBA will be even more important to our attorneys and clients than it was during our first 100 years.”
