Are you interested in helping your bar association stay relevant within the rapidly changing legal environment? Do you want to make a meaningful contribution to the legal profession and to your community? Submit your name for nomination to the OCBA board of directors!

The OCBA's board sets the strategic direction for the bar association. As a board member, your role is to help shape the future of the bar association. Directors have a collective responsibility as well as an individual responsibility to help carry out the OCBA's mission.

The Nominating Committee, chaired by Immediate Past President Daniel D. Quick, will be meeting soon to develop a slate of candidates for this year's election process. The OCBA's bylaws require that the Nominating Committee submit at least one name but no more than two names for each open board position. This year there are four three-year terms to be filled.

Potential candidates are asked to submit a letter of intent; a Personal Data Form outlining your contributions to the legal profession, involvement in committees and your area of law practice; and a signed Board of Directors Responsibilities and Expectations Form. The last two items are included in the nominations materials.

Membership in the fellows program is evidence of professional distinction and is limited to less than 10 percent of total active membership of the State Bar of Michigan who practice in Oakland County.
