Section Council Appointment Procedure

Family Law Section Council elects new Section Council members based upon their efforts to contribute to Section Council activities, their reputation with regard to family law practice, and their willingness to attend a requisite number of meetings.

After serving on the Section and performing the various duties asked of him or her, the Council member is usually asked to serve a second term. If they can survive a second term and show an interest in serving in leadership, the Election Committee, composed of the past-President, President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary review the potential nominees and make a recommendation to the entire Section. Following that, formal voting occurs.
