Become an SCCBA Delegate

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 7, 2019



The Santa Clara County Bar Association is organizing its delegation to the 2019 Conference of California Bar Associations which will be held this year in Monterey October 11-13, 2019.


Joining the delegation is a great way to serve the profession and the people of California while expanding your legal knowledge and getting to know other attorneys from Santa Clara County and other parts of California. We expect to have between 10 and 15 delegates this year.  SCCBA’s delegation has been an active, influential group during the Conference’s deliberations.


The Conference of Delegates is an annual meeting of delegations from local and specialty bar associations intended to help refine and improve all areas of California laws. Proposed changes are debated, and changes approved by the Conference are submitted to the legislature and lobbied by the Conference's lobbyist.  The resolutions of SCCBA delegates have been adopted by the Conference, and enacted into law in the recent past.


Our delegation’s work is multi-phased, involving approximately 3-4 meetings during the year prior to the Conference.  Among our activities are preparation of our own resolutions, and review of and response to other delegations’ resolutions.  We plan to have meetings in February, May and September.


There are no prerequisites for becoming a delegate. If you wish to join the SCCBA delegation, please contact Shiv Shastri (ph.:(650)428-1768;                                                  e-mail:; or Tanwi Negi, SCCBA staff liaison (e-mail:


The first meeting of the year will occur at the Bar Offices on February 15, 2019, at noon. Lunch is not provided.  We look forward to seeing all interested Bar Association members at that meeting.
