SCCBA TO SELECT ABA DELEGATE FOR TWO YEAR TERM

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 23, 2018

DESCRIPTION: As a bar association with at least 2,000 members, the SCCBA is entitled to send a delegate to the ABA House of Delegates to represent the SCCBA.  The delegate serves a two year term.  The term of the SCCBA's current delegate expires at the conclusion of the August 2018 ABA Annual Meeting.  The SCCBA Board of Terms will select a delegate for another two year term at its regular Board meeting on May 31, 2018.

The delegate attends the ABA’s annual and mid-year meetings, represents the SCCBA’s interests, votes on the SCCBA’s behalf, and reports back to the SCCBA Board of Trustees. The delegate serves a two-year term and receives a $1,500 annual stipend from the SCCBA to partially reimburse his or her expenses. 

CRITERIA: Some of the criteria the Board will consider, but are not exclusive, are as follows.

  • Be an Active Member of the SCCBA and the ABA;
  • A member who is well regarded in the legal community locally, statewide and/or nationally;
  • Must be enthusiastic about serving as ABA delegate;
  • Be a member and/or active on one or more House of Delegates Committees;
  • Will engage actively with the Board to plan for the ABA meetings; identify and discuss potential initiatives of interest to the SCCBA and planned votes;
  • Report to the Board at the first Board meeting after the ABA mid-year and annual meetings in person and/or in writing.


APPLICATION: If you are interested in applying for the vacancy, please contact SCCBA CEO Chris Burdick at chrisb@sccba.com as soon as possible to request an application. In addition to the application, you will be requested to submit a resume and statement of interest.

Deadline for submission of the application is FRIDAY, MAY 11, 2018 at 4:45 pm.

The ABA House of Delegates, in its role as the policy-making body of the Association, meets at the Midyear Meeting in February and the Annual Meeting in August. At each meeting, the House considers and adopts new policy resolutions on a broad range of issues related to the legal profession. Once resolutions are adopted as official ABA policy, the Governmental Affairs Office coordinates implementation of the policies and serves as the focal point for the Association's advocacy efforts before Congress, the Executive Branch and other governmental entities.
