ABA Board Nominations - Closes at 11:59 p.m. ET Today
ABA is a trade association that belongs to its members. Members help set the course for the organization by electing a board of directors made up of their peers. The ABA Board sets policy for the association, monitors the performance of the CEO — who is responsible for formulating and executing the strategy to meet the goals of the organization — and futurecasts for industry trends to inform the membership and ABA’s work. Directors on the ABA board make a significant time commitment, meeting many times over the course of the year, virtually and/or in person.
It is also desirable, though not required, that nominees have at least two years experience as an active volunteer in ABA and/or in a regional association or other constituency organization. Qualifications are outlined in the ABA Nomination and Election Guidelines from the ABA Governance Policy Manual.
Nominating takes just a few minutes via a web form that asks three questions.
