Bill Bay Elected Chair of ABA House of Delegates
William R. Bay of Thompson Coburn has been elected chair of the American Bar Association House of Delegates. The two-year post of chair is the second-highest office in the ABA.
As the ABA’s policymaking body, the House of Delegates considers and adopts new policy resolutions on a broad range of issues related to the legal profession. Action taken by the House of Delegates on specific issues becomes the official policy of the ABA. The House’s 560 delegates represent state and local bar associations, substantive legal sections and divisions of the ABA, and affiliated organizations and conferences of the ABA Judicial Division, as well as former ABA officers, members of the Board of Governors, at-large delegates and state delegates.
“We are stewards and representatives of lawyers and bar associations throughout the world,” said Mr. Bay in his acceptance speech. “I take very seriously the responsibility of the House to be the voice of the profession — and we have a great story to tell.”
