Notice of Election of Bar President-Elect
Any active member of the Bar in good standing is eligible to submit his or her name to the Bar Commission to be nominated to run for the office of president-elect in a popular election and to succeed to the office of president. Indications of an interest to be nominated are due at the Bar offices, c/o Executive Director John Baldwin, 645 South 200 East, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84111 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on January 2, 2009.
The Bar Commission will interview all potential candidates at its meeting in Salt Lake City on January 23, 2009, and will then select two finalists to run on a ballot submitted to the active Bar membership. Final candidates may also include sitting Bar Commissioners who have indicated an interest in running for the office.
Ballots will be mailed on or about April 1st with balloting to be completed and ballots received by the Bar office by 5:00 p.m. on May 1st. The president-elect will be seated at the Bar’s Annual Convention and will serve one year as president-elect prior to succeeding to the office of president. The president and president-elect need not be sitting Bar commissioners.
In order to reduce campaign costs, the Bar will print a 200-word campaign statement from the final candidates in the Utah Bar Journal, a 500-word campaign statement on the web site, and will include a one-page statement in the ballot envelope.
