At the Thursday, January 10 Board meeting, the KABA-SD Board and membership voted unanimously to approve amendments to the KABA-SD Bylaws. In substantive part, the revisions to the bylaws provide the Board of Directors with greater flexibility to modify the dues structure, and allow attorneys residing in San Diego but who are admitted to jurisdictions not including California to also be eligible for regular membership. Any members interested in obtaining a copy of the operative KABA-SD Bylaws should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are happy to announce KABA-SD’s board members for the 2013 year!
