ISBA Seeks Candidates for 3 Assembly Vacancies

The ISBA will soon fill three vacant Assembly seats, two in Cook County and one in the 18th Circuit (DuPage County). One Cook County seat has a one-year term and the other has a two-year term. Both terms begin immediately – the two-year vacancy will be filled first. The 18th Circuit vacancy is for a two-year term and begins immediately. Assembly members must reside in their circuit or district.

Interested in being a candidate? Under a policy change adopted at the 2016 Annual meeting, Assembly vacancies are no longer filled in the first instance by the Board of Governors. Instead, those seeking election must submit a nominating petition with at least 10 member signatures to the Executive Director at kweaver@isba.org. Within seven days of receiving the first petition, the ISBA will send notice via email to the membership in the affected area calling for any other nominations. If none are received within 14 days of the notice, the member submitting the nominating petition is declared elected. If more nominating petitions than vacancies are submitted, the Board will fill the vacancy from those submitting the petitions.

The new policy is at paragraph 3.8(a) of the ISBA Policy and Procedures on Association Elections. Please consult the full document for details about Assembly vacancies, nominating petitions, and other election-related processes.  If you have questions, contact Kim Weaver, Assistant to the Executive Director, at 800.252.8908 or kweaver@isba.org.
