Vacancies at ABA House of Delegates

February 4, 2008

The State Bar of Michigan Board of Commissioners is seeking names of persons interested in filling three vacancies for the American Bar Association House of Delegates. Two vacancies are for two-year terms beginning at the close of the ABA Annual Meeting in August 2008, and one for the balance of a term expiring at the close of the Annual Meeting in 2009.

The ABA House of Delegates has the ultimate responsibility for establishing Association policy, both as to the administration of the Association and its positions on professional and public issues. The House elects officers of the Association and members of the Board of Governors; it elects members of the Committee on Scope and Correlation of Work; it has the sole authority to amend the Association's bylaws; and it may amend the Constitution. It authorizes committees and sections of the Association and discontinues them. It sets Association dues upon the recommendation of the Board of Governors.

The deadline for responding is February 15, 2008. Applications received after this deadline will not be considered. Those applying for an agency appointment should submit a résumé and a letter outlining interest in the ABA, current position in the ABA, work on ABA committees and sections, accomplishments, and contributions to the State Bar and to the ABA.
