The SFVBA Nominating Committee seeks members who aspire to lead the San Fernando Valley Bar Association and wish to be considered for nomination as a candidate for its Board of Trustees.
Trustees’ responsibilities include setting policy and overseeing the association’s finances. Trustees also work closely with SFVBA staff to improve and develop programs for the public; expand benefits and services for members; promote the public image of lawyers and the justice system, and are active participants in SFVBA programs and committees.
After evaluating all applications, up to 12 candidates may be nominated by the SFVBA Nominating Committee. Of those nominated, six (6) will be elected to two-year terms and two will be appointed for one year to fill the open Trustee seats on the Board. The President may appoint a Trustee from the Associate (non-attorney) membership, who would have full voting rights on Board matters.
An application for nomination can be downloaded at https://sfvba.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/2020-Trustee-application.pdf. The deadline to submit an application for nomination is Friday, June 5.
The Board of Trustees Election commences on Monday, August 10 and culminates with Election Day on Tuesday, September 10, 2020.
