FROM:         Deborah Enix-Ross, President-Elect

SUBJECT:     Presidential Appointments Process

The American Bar Association provides its members with countless
opportunities to serve the profession and the public and enhance
professional skills. As President-Elect, it is my privilege to make
appointments to ABA Standing and Special Committees, Commissions, Working
Groups, Task Forces and other ABA entities for the Association year
beginning September 1, 2022. I encourage you to apply and/or recommend
interested candidates for appointment to these entities. Beginning December
31, 2021, please visit http://ambar.org/appointments, for a list of
committees and the on-line application. Recommendations must be received via
the on-line application by February 18, 2022, for consideration.

In addition to your self-nomination or recommendations, I hope that you will
encourage other interested individuals to apply on their own behalf. The
Appointments Committee and I will give each application thorough
consideration, but please understand that the number of qualified applicants
typically far exceeds the number of open positions. Please note that ABA
membership is required for service on ABA committees. The only exception is
membership on commissions where non-lawyer experts are allowed to serve. If
you, or the person whom you nominate, do not receive an appointment this
year, I hope you will understand the constraints under which we are working
and consider reapplying in the future. I also encourage you to consider
becoming involved in one of our outstanding Sections, Divisions or Forums in
your area of expertise by visiting https://www.americanbar.org/membership.
Members now enjoy an enhanced suite of benefits.

If you would like to discuss this process, please feel free to contact the
Appointments Committee Chair, Michelle Behnke, at (608) 233-9024, or
Mbehnke at behnkeassociates.com or Vice-Chair, Stephen Younger, at (646)
927-5565, or spyounger at foleyhoag.com. For questions regarding the on-line
application, please contact Katy Englehart in the Office of the President at
Katy.englehart at americanbar.org.
