Section Nominating Committee to Submit Slate of Candidates for Council Positions
The 2006 Nominating Committee is set to recommend candidates for open Section Council positions in the 2006-2007 year. Past Section Chair, Hon. Cruz Reynoso, chairs the committee; other members include Council members Shelley D. Hayes, Richard J. Podell, and Drucilla S. Ramey, and Section Chair-elect Robert E. Stein ( ex officio).
Section members will vote on the Committee’s slate at a luncheon to be held at noon on Friday, Aug. 4, 2006, at the Hilton Hawaiian Village during the 2006 ABA Annual Meeting in Honolulu. Under the Section’s bylaws, any Section member may nominate candidates other than those selected by the Nominating Committee by submitting a written statement of nomination, signed by one other member in addition to the member being nominated, to Section Chair Paul M. Igasaki or to Section Secretary Neal R. Sonnett at least six hours before the election. Nominations are not permitted from the floor at the time of the election.
Any Section member interested in nomination for a Council position may contact any Nominating Committee member or Section Director Tanya Terrell-Collier.
