While this isn’t strictly employment law related, I wanted to take a minute to give some recognition (and brag) that the Arizona Attorney Magazine, published by the State Bar of Arizona, won the National Association of Bar Executives Luminary Award. Some of the regular readers know that I am a member of the Arizona Attorney Editorial Board, and that I think it is the single greatest magazine that has ever existed. Putting my thoughts aside, the external recognition is always a huge honor and very appreciated.
The mastermind behind the magazine is our editor, Tim Eigo. I would go into more praise about his leadership, but I think the judge’s comments from NABE say it best about him and the Art Director, Karen Holub:
Arizona Attorney continues to be the most innovative and interesting state/local bar publication in the country, and it has to be one of the most profitable. Tim Eigo’s embrace of new media has informed his approach to the magazine in an enlivening way, and Karen Holub’s remarkable design work is arresting but not distracting – her illustrations help tell, but never overwhelm, the story. And the ads, good gawd, the ads! Just an inspiring model of excellence from stem to stern.

The magazine won the large-bar category back in 2001 and 2009 as well. For those who haven’t read the magazine before, it is published approximately 11 times a year, and includes substantive articles on legal issues in Arizona and throughout the nation.
