YLD Adopts Bylaws Amendment

At a specially called membership meeting March 17, members of the Young Lawyers Division unanimously approved an amendment to the division bylaws changing the designation of specialty bar representatives from non-voting board members to invited guests. The amendment vests authority for identifying the groups to be invited with the YLD Diversity Committee. The amendment now must be approved by the TBA Board of Governors, which is expected to consider the change at its spring meeting April 13-15. Learn more about the issue.
