The Nominating Committee is seeking active NCBA Members who want to serve on the Nassau County Bar Association Board of Directors. The deadline to apply is Monday, January 23, 2023.
The NCBA Board of Directors consists of the President, President-Elect, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, 24 elected Directors, as well as the Dean of the Nassau Academy of Law, Chair of the New Lawyers Committee, NCBA delegates to the NYSBA House of Delegates, and all past presidents of the Bar Association.
NCBA Officers and a class of eight Directors are elected at the Annual Meeting on May 9 and take office June 1, 2023. Officers serve for one-year terms and Directors hold office for 3-year terms. Officers and Directors will be sworn in at the Installation on June 6, 2023.
Members who wish to be nominated must be a Life, Regular or Sustaining Member of the Association for at least three consecutive years, and an active member of a committee for at least two consecutive years. The Nominating Committee also considers each applicant’s areas of practice, leadership positions in the Nassau County Bar Association and other organizations, and the diversity of experience and background a candidate would bring to the Bar’s governing body.
In 2022, 20 NCBA Members applied for nine Director positions and five Members applied for Secretary. Directors are encouraged to make a financial contribution to the NCBA of at least $1,000 annually by becoming a Sustaining Member; purchasing or selling event tickets and sponsorships; or soliciting new members and corporate sponsorships.
The Nominating Committee consists of nine Members of the Association who previously served on the Board of Directors. Dorian R. Glover, NCBA Immediate Past President “once removed,” is Chair of the Committee and Immediate Past President Gregory S. Lisi serves as Vice-Chair.
“The Nominating Committee is seeking candidates with diverse experiences and skills who are committed to serving our community and legal profession,” says Glover. “We need Officers and Directors who can lead our Bar Association during these unprecedented times and help create value for Members.”
Interviews with candidates will begin in early February; the Committee will nominate one person for each Officer—other than President—and Director position and issue its report at least one month prior to the 2023 Annual Meeting and Election to be held on Tuesday, May 9.
NCBA members interested in applying to become a Director or Officer should forward a letter of intent, application, resume or curriculum vitae no later than January 24 to Executive Director Elizabeth Post at firstname.lastname@example.org or NCBA, 15th & West Streets, Mineola, NY 11501.
