CBA Nominating Committee Looking to Fill Officer Positions

Written Friday, November 8, 2019

Do you want to make a difference in the legal profession? Becoming a leader of the Connecticut Bar Association can be a highly rewarding experience. At this time, CBA members are encouraged to submit their own names, or names of other CBA members who may have an interest in serving as an officer of the association.

We are currently looking to fill the positions of vice president, secretary, treasurer, and assistant secretary-treasurer for the 2020-2021 bar year.

The position of vice president must be filled in this next year by a nominee who is registered within the CBA from Litchfield County, Middlesex County, Windham County, Tolland County, or New London Country as of March 1, 2019, in accordance with the CBA Constitution, and its policy of geographically rotating the president's track position. The vice president traditionally advances to president-elect and to president.

The secretary, treasurer, and assistant secretary-treasurer positions are not geographically restricted, and are generally one year positions.

Each nominated name should be accompanied by a biographical sketch or resume detailing participation in activities including CBA governance, such as membership on the House of Delegates; Board of Governors; sections or committees; involvement with local, affinity, or specialty bar associations; and volunteer and community activities, particularly those related to the practice of law such as pro bono service, service on judicial panels and commissions, and services on standing committees.

Proposed names should be e-mailed to the Nominating Committee chair, Jonathan M. Shapiro, at jshapiro@ctbar.org or sent in an envelope marked "CONFIDENTIAL" to:
Connecticut Bar Association

Jonathan M. Shapiro, Nominating Committee Chair
30 Bank St
