July 21 membership meeting set to vote on MBA Bylaw Amendments

The House of Delegates has approved amendments to the Bylaws for the Massachusetts Bar Association, and now a membership vote is needed in order for these to take effect. The Bylaw amendments were drafted and submitted for approval to the House of Delegates by the Governance committee, which was appointed in 2009 by then President Edward W. McIntyre. The Governance Committee was chaired by Past President Warren F. Fitzgerald, with John J. Carroll Jr., Walter A. Costello Jr., Mary Jo Kennedy, Robert J. Kerwin, Martha Rush O'Mara, James T. Van Buren and Daniel B. Winslow. The Bylaw amendments were approved for a vote of the membership by the House of Delegates at its May 19, 2010 meeting. The Governance Committee reviewed and considered all sections of the Bylaws and, as a result, amendments are contained throughout the proposed Bylaws.
