LACBA Seeks Delegates to the Conference of California Bar Associations

to apply.

LACBA members are encouraged to apply for positions on LACBA’s 2017 Delegation to the Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA). CCBA brings together attorneys from diverse backgrounds, experience, and expertise to seek, debate, and promote creative, nonpartisan legislative solutions to law-related issues in California. Following the conference, CCBA works to mold the legislative agenda in Sacramento by having its lobbyist work with legislators on bills based directly on the resolutions passed at the conference.

LACBA’s Delegation is the largest in the state and has enjoyed tremendous success over the years by having many of its own resolutions passed by the CCBA and then passed through the legislature to become law.

Participating in the delegation is not only an opportunity to improve laws and promote justice in the California, but also to enjoy camaraderie and networking with an esteemed community of approximately 350 attorneys who are passionate about a broad cross-section of California law.

Interested LACBA members should complete the application HERE. Proposal of resolutions for the 2017 Conference are currently due to LACBA on January 27, 2017. CLICK HERE to propose a resolution.
