Seeking Nominations for Minority Governor Position on PBA Board of Governors

Deadline: March 1

PBA President Jay Silberblatt is seeking nominations for the next Minority Governor to serve on the PBA Board of Governors for a three-year term commencing at the conclusion of the 2023 Annual Meeting. For this appointment, members from Zone 9 (Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties) or Zone 12 (Allegheny County) are ineligible because, pursuant to Section 907(g) of the PBA bylaws, the Minority Governor position cannot be filled by someone from the same zones as current Minority and Woman Governors (Zone 9, hon. Cheryl A. Austin and Zone 12, Amy J. Coco).

The appointment shall be approved by a majority vote of the Board of Governors. Section 907(e) states the President shall invite recommendations for such appointments from the Board of Governors, Minority Bar Committee and the Commission on Women in the Profession. Please submit recommendations no later than March 1. A nomination for final approval will be presented to the Board of Governors (at a meeting to be scheduled) for the position no later than 30 days before the start of the next annual meeting (May 5, 2023).
