NJSBA Accepting Petitions for Positions

The New Jersey State Bar Association is accepting petitions from members for the positions of at-large trustee and second vice president. Both positions are for full terms and will begin in May. The at-large trustee seat is designated for a woman.
 
Candidates must file a petition by March 18 to appear on the ballot that will be voted on by the association's full, eligible membership.
 
Candidates seeking a spot on the ballot for the position of second vice president must submit a petition with signatures from 250 members of the association. Candidates seeking the at-large trustee seat must submit a petition with signatures from 100 members of the association.

Once the petitions are certified, the names of qualified candidates for each position will go on the ballot.

The association's Nominating Committee had selected Angela White Dalton to serve as its second vice president and Mitzy Galis-Menendez as an at-large trustee. Both terms were to begin May. Earlier this month, both were confirmed as judges of the Superior Court and withdrew from consideration.

The petition process remains applicable to the remainder of the slate of candidates the Nominating Committee selected.
