State Bar President-elect Nominees

The State Bar Board of Directors will consider the recommendations at its next meeting, on September 28 in Austin. The meeting is open to the public, and anyone is welcome to attend. If the board approves their nominations, Collins and McDougal would appear on the ballot in April 2019 along with any certified petition candidates.
