Board Elections


And we’re creating a board that reflects the diversity of the legal profession, including a mix of practice types, experience, skills, geography and more.

Voting for the 2017-2018 CBA Board of Directors

The voting period to elect members of the 2017-2018 CBA Board of Directors is from 8 a.m. EDT on March 31, 2017 until 8 p.m. EDT on April 27, 2017.

Electors – the 2016-2017 Board of Directors, the National Section Chairs and the National Forum Chairs - are invited to review the candidates for each jurisdiction along with the slate recommended by the Interim Governance & Equality Committee.

The Governance and Equality Committee is a Board Committee in the new CBA governance structure. In this transition year, the Board of Directors has appointed an interim Governance and Equality Committee whose seven members reflect the range of geography, diversity and types of practice of the CBA membership.

The committee has been tasked with reviewing the applications and recommending a slate of candidates that best meets the mandatory and preferred criteria outlined in Annex B of resolution 16-01-A.
