Ellen Gibson McGinnis of Haynes and Boone to Receive Yale Medal

October 22, 2012 // Franchising.com // WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Association of Yale Alumni (AYA) has named Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Ellen Gibson McGinnis a recipient of the Yale Medal, the highest award presented by the association to recognize and honor outstanding individual service to the university.

The award will be presented to McGinnis and five other alums by the Chair of the AYA and the President of Yale at an awards dinner on Nov. 9.

McGinnis is a founding member and current Chair of YaleWomen, the new organization for women alums, and serves as a Council member of Women’s Health Research at Yale.

She was a member of the AYA Board of Governors and served as chair from 2008 to 2010. McGinnis advanced the AYA’s strategic plan to develop new programs that inspired alums who had never connected with Yale after graduation to engage with each other, their communities, and the university, and deepened the engagement of connected alums. Under her leadership, the AYA Board expanded committee membership to non-board members, which enabled a broader scope of programs and effectiveness of alumni volunteer efforts.

Additionally, she was a member of the University Council, an agent of the Alumni Fund, an officer of two regional Yale Clubs and the treasurer of her class.

At Haynes and Boone, McGinnis represents financial institutions to structure, negotiate, and document complex loan transactions, with a focus on subscription-secured facilities.
