Dear Colleague:

As President-Elect, I am honored to make approximately 700 appointments to ABA Standing Committees, Special Committees, Commissions, and other Association entities and initiatives. I welcome and value your participation as you seek an appointment or nominate an individual whom you know. The online guide on this website lists and describes the available ABA appointments and how they fit into the overall organization. It also provides guidance for your participation in the appointments process. The nominations application system has been integrated with the ABA’s association management system, which means you will not need to complete basic information about yourself; however, if your record is incomplete, it is critical that you complete it as fully as possible so that the Appointments Committee has necessary information about you for the vetting process. Please visit the FAQ and Step-by-Step Guide on this website for detailed instructions about the nominations process.

Presidential Appointments

All Association members are eligible for a Presidential appointment. The online process begins on January 8, 2019 and the deadline for all submissions has been extended to February 21, 2019 at 6pm EST. We urge you to submit your application before the February 21st deadline to avoid system delays that sometimes occur due to heavy use close to the deadline. Please note that the on-line nominations system works best for PC users; mobile device users may experience some difficulties completing the online application.

If you need assistance completing the application, please contact:
