Use this thread to nominate yourself for President.
Nominations close July 9, midnight PDT. Candidates are invited to speak at the July 10 general meeting.
Elections will open after the July 10 meeting, and the new officers will take office at the August meeting.
Per our 501(c)(3) status, all board positions require disclosure of "real life" identities.
President-Elect/President: The President will run General Meetings and act as the public face of the organization. The President-Elect takes over the office of President on February 1 of the year following elections. In the meantime, the current president continues in that role.
In order to allow the President to carry out his or her duties as the public face of the SLBA, the President-Elect (and thus, the President) must (a) be a lawyer qualified to practice law, conduct litigation, act as advocate, and/or give legal advice, in at least one first-life jurisdiction, in accordance with the laws and rules of professional conduct (if any) of that jurisdiction and (b) make his or her "first life" name and bar memberships publicly available. No other offices require lawyer status.
