The American Bar Association (ABA) Judicial Division (JD) Bylaws provide that, at each Annual Meeting, the JD elects a Vice-Chair whose term begins at the close of that Annual Meeting. It is now the time for the Appellate Judges Conference (AJC) to select a representative from our Conference to serve as the Vice-Chair of the JD. Other duties and responsibilities of the Vice-Chair include serving as the Vice-Chair of the JD’s Strategic Planning Committee.

The AJC Executive Committee will vote on the recommendation and submit its nominee to the JD Nominating Committee.
