Dear Section Member:

As Chair-Elect, it is my privilege to appoint highly qualified and diverse individuals to join the Section’s leadership team in 2015-16. Please review the instructions and the application form for a leadership position. This form can also be used to nominate another Section member for a leadership position. To identify one or more positions that may be of interest to you or your nominee, you can review the Section's organizational chart

Committee Chair Positions

As in past years, we expect the number of applicants to exceed the number of positions available. We must choose among many highly qualified individuals and balance numerous factors when making appointments, including applicants’ substantive background, as well as geographic and demographic diversity. If you do not receive an appointment this year as chair of a committee, I hope you will understand the constraints we are working under and consider reapplying in the future.

Other Leadership Positions

There are also leadership opportunities within many of the Section’s entities. These include vice chair and subcommittee chair positions and web and newsletter editors. If you or your nominee have an interest in a particular committee and one of these positions then please note that in the appropriate box on the application form, and we will forward your name or the name of your nominee to the committee’s leadership so that they can contact you to become involved.  

All Section members are eligible for a leadership appointment. The online process is open, and the deadline for the submission of all applications is February 20, 2015. If you have problems completing the on-line application,please contact Keisha BillupsKeisha.billups@americanbar.org.

Thank you for your participation in this process and for your dedication to the ABA Section of Litigation.

Steve Weiss
