DELEGATE-AT-LARGE VACANCY

Due to the resignation of Suzanne E. Gilbert, a Delegate-at-Large vacancy will exist. To fill this vacancy, one Delegate-at-Large to the House of Delegates will be elected at the 2010 Annual Meeting for a one-year term beginning with the adjournment of that meeting and ending with the adjournment of the 2011 Annual Meeting. Candidates for election as Delegate-at-Large are to be nominated by written petition. The deadline for filing nominating petitions for the 2010 vacancy election in San Francisco, California, is Friday, July 9, 2010. Voting will take place in the registration area of the Moscone Center. The polls will be open during the same hours as registration, except on the last day the polls will close at 10:00 a.m. The votes will then be tallied and the nominee with the highest number of votes in the vacancy election will be declared elected as Delegate-at-Large. In the event of a tie vote, I, as the Secretary, will determine the winner by lot. Rules that restrict campaigning for the position of Delegate-at-Large will be mailed to all nominees upon receipt of their petitions. Nominating petitions may be obtained from the Office of the Secretary, Carri L. Kerber, American Bar Center, 321 N. Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois 60654. The petition must be signed by twenty-five (25) members of the American Bar Association. The signing by any member of one petition will not disqualify him/her as the signer of other petitions. Each petition must be filed with my office at the above address by the close of business at 5:00 p.m. (CDT), Friday, July 9, 2010. The filing must include the written consent of the nominee and a biographical sketch approved by the nominee consisting of not more than seventy-five (75) words. All biographical sketches will be printed and available to Association members as they register or collect their credentials at the registration desk at the Annual Meeting.

Any questions regarding the foregoing should be sent promptly to the Office of the Secretary at the Bar Center in care of Carri L. Kerber
