NOTICE BY THE SECRETARY OF THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION REGARDING ELECTION TO FILL DELEGATE-AT-LARGE VACANCY FOR 2016-2018 TERM
Due to the nomination of Hon. Leslie Miller to the ABA Board of Governors, 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 2016 Annual Meeting for a two-year term beginning with the adjournment of that meeting and ending with the adjournment of the 2018 Annual Meeting. Candidates for election as Delegate-at-Large are to be nominated by written petition. The deadline for filing nominating petitions for the 2016 Delegate-at-Large vacancy election in San Francisco, California, is Friday, July 22, 2016.
Voting will take place in the ABA registration area. The polls will be open during the same hours as registration, except the polls will close on Monday, August 8, 2016 at 5:00 p.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, Leticia D. Spencer, American Bar Center, 321 N. Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois 60654. The petition must be signed by twenty-five (25) lawyer 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. (CT), Friday, July 22, 2016. 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 Leticia D. Spencer.
