2024 Midyear Meeting Open Hearing

The 2025 ABA Commission on Governance invites you to attend its first open hearing on February 3, 2024 from 10:00 am – 11:30 am Eastern at the Omni Louisville hotel in the Omstead 1 and 2 rooms.

According to §16.1 of the Constitution and Bylaws, beginning in 2005 and once every ten years thereafter, a review shall be conducted of the House of Delegates, the Board of Governors and the Nominating Committee. With respect to each body the review shall include an examination of its size and a consideration of its composition to ensure appropriate representation of constituencies. The review of the Board of Governors shall include a review of the issue of districting in terms of Association membership. The next review must be completed and a report submitted for consideration by the House of Delegates by the 2025 Annual Meeting.

The goal of the Commission, in conducting this review, is to foster a transparent and reflective collaboration among all stakeholders to evaluate the current governance of the ABA and formulate recommendations to address the needs of the Association in the future. The Commission is still in the process of developing its topics for review.  This open hearing will serve as an initial opportunity for you/your entity to provide input with respect to the issues that should be addressed.
