Phillips Murrah attorney Cody J. Cooper was elected as one of six members of Oklahoma County Bar Association’s Board of Directors for 2018 through 2021.
OCBA members were tasked with electing Cooper, as well as Attorneys Chris Deason, Rachel Stoddard Morris, Kelli Stump and Judge Trevor Pemberton, as Directors.
Cooper’s goals in this role include collaborating with OCBA members and Directors to find new ways of engaging membership and to take a bigger leadership role after previously serving the Young Lawyers Division.
“My motivation to become a board member primarily came about from my involvement with the board as the YLD chair,” Cooper said. “It’s an opportunity to take part in county bar leadership and be engaged in the legal community where I live and work.
“The OCBA is an active bar community with an emphasis on helping its member attorneys and providing community service and support, and I wanted to have a more hands-on role doing that.”
Cooper will serve as Past Chair of YLD through 2019 to offer guidance and support as OCBA’s new YLD chair assumes their role. He has also been chosen as an OCBA delegate to the Oklahoma Bar Association.
