Board of Directors
The State Bar of Texas is governed by a board of directors with 46 voting members from across the state who volunteer their valuable time and professional experience. The voting members include:
3 officers elected statewide by State Bar members (president, president-elect, and immediate past president),
30 attorneys elected from 17 geographical districts,
6 public (non-attorney) members appointed by the Supreme Court,
4 at-large directors appointed by the State Bar president, and
3 officers elected statewide by Texas Young Lawyers Association members (president, president-elect, and immediate past president).
Fourteen nonvoting, ex-officio members also serve on the State Bar board, including the immediate past board chair and liaisons representing the judiciary, State Bar sections, and out-of-state members. The expertise provided by these volunteer leaders allows the State Bar to continue to provide high-quality services and programs to members and the public.
