NJSBA Nominating Committee seeks candidates for vacant Young Lawyers Division and Section/Committee Trustee seats

The New Jersey State Bar Association’s Nominating Committee invites members to apply for two vacant Young Lawyers Division seats and a vacant Section/Committee Trustee seat on the NJSBA Board of Trustees.
Both Young Lawyer Division Trustee seats are for unexpired terms.
One of the selected candidates will serve from the time of nomination until May 2019. The nominated candidate may seek re-nomination at that time for a full, two-year term.
The second selected candidate will serve from the time of nomination until May 2020.
The Young Lawyers Division Trustee must be a member of the Young Lawyers Division. (Article VI, 4(a))

The Section/Committee Trustee position is for an unexpired term, and the selected candidate will serve from the time of nomination until May 2019. The nominated candidate may seek re-nomination at that time for a new, two-year term.
Section/Committee Trustees are elected from among the membership of NJSBA sections and committees.
Candidates for Section/Committee Trustee must be NJSBA members in good standing, as well as active members of a section or committee, and, further, must secure a formal sponsorship of the section or committee they seek to represent. Sponsorship may be voted on by the entire section or committee, or by the section or committee’s governing body. A section or committee may sponsor only one candidate during any nominating cycle, and no more than one Section/Committee Trustee sponsored by any one section or committee may sit on the Board of Trustees at any one time. [NJSBA Bylaws, Article VI, 4(c), Article VIII, 3(d)].
Sections and committees already represented on the Board of Trustees that are precluded from sponsoring a candidate, include: the Child Welfare Law Section, the Civil Trial Bar Section, the Equity Jurisprudence Committee, the Health Law Section, the Labor and Employment Law Section, the Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section, the Solo and Small-Firm Section and the Taxation Section.
The Nominating Committee will use the following criteria to evaluate all candidates interested in any of the available positions:
     1. Adherence to the highest standards of fairness, professional responsibility, civility and professionalism;
     2. The quality of prior service to the organized bar;
     3. Prior or present leadership positions and degree of effectiveness in these positions;
     4. Dedication, capacity for hard work, and ability to fulfill all relevant duties;
     5. Awareness of the NJSBA’s internal structure, in particular the duties for the position sought;
     6. Demonstrated ability to synthesize and understand extensive information;
     7. Demonstrated common sense, good judgment and the ability to articulate positions intelligently;
     8. Prior service to the NJSBA and its constituent parts;
     9. Prior service to county and specialty bar associations;
   10. Extent of practice in the state of New Jersey;
   11. Geographical balance of the NJSBA leadership,
   12. Recognition and understanding of the essential issues facing the organized bar, the profession, and capacity to lead in a creative, responsible fashion.
Filing Deadline: In order for a candidate to qualify for consideration by the Nominating Committee, they should send a letter stating the intent to seek the position sought. All letters should include an email address for the candidate.
Upon receipt of such a request, a questionnaire will be forwarded by email. Both the questionnaire and a sponsorship form for the Section/Committee trustee position must be completed and returned no later than 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018. 
An in-person interview with the Nominating Committee is also required and those interviews will be conducted on Tuesday, Nov. 27, beginning at 4 p.m.
