Become an SCCBA Delegate to the Conference of Delegates

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 30, 2018

      The Santa Clara County Bar Association is organizing its delegation to the 2018 Conference of California Bar Associations [otherwise known as the Conference of Delegates (website:www.calconference.org<http://www.calconference.org)] which will be held this year in San Diego, September 14 through 16 (Friday afternoon through Sunday mid-day).  The Conference of Delegates is an annual meeting of delegations from local and specialty bar associations intended to help refine and improve California laws, including laws dealing with family, corporate, real estate, criminal, labor and probate matters, civil procedure, courts and attorneys.  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 (as recently as last year), and enacted into law in the recent past.

 

      We expect to have between 10 and 15 delegates this year.  Historically, including in 2017, SCCBA’s delegation has been an active, influential group during the Conference’s deliberations.  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.

 

     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, April/May and September.

 

        There are no specific pre-requisites for becoming a delegate.  If you wish to join the SCCBA delegation, please contact Shiv Shastri (ph.: (650)428-1768; email: shivadevshastri@att.net; or Tiffany Taubodo at the Bar Offices [email:tiffanyt@sccba.com).

 

     Our first meeting of the year will occur at the Bar Offices on February 9, 2018, at noon.  Lunch will not be provided.  We look forward to seeing all interested Bar Association members at that meeting.
