The Massachusetts Bar Association membership year runs Sept. 1 - Aug. 31.
A new House of Delegates governs the business of the MBA each association year and is comprised of officers and section chairs, along with the two immediate past presidents, regional delegates, at-large delegates and representatives of MBA's affiliated bar associations, the Massachusetts Bar Foundation and the Massachusetts ABA delegate.
MBA officers include the president, president-elect, vice president, treasurer and secretary. Each fulfills a one-year term. The president is responsible for selecting the association's executive management board and section leadership. Section Council chairs select a group of 10-15 legal professionals to serve on their respective councils. The section councils are responsible for much of the association's activity throughout the year under the leadership of officers.
