Wisconsin Supreme Court Notice
On May 12, 2020, the State Bar president and chair of the Board of Governors asked the court to authorize the temporary waiver of SCR 10.07 (meetings of the association) and sections of State Bar Bylaws Article III relating to the annual meeting of the members, meetings associated with the annual meeting, and in-person requirements for regular meetings of the Board of Governors.
The State Bar has determined that the annual conference scheduled for June 2020 should be cancelled due to safety and health concerns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual meeting and final general meeting of the Board of Governors, which are held concurrent with the annual conference, also should be cancelled.
The State Bar will hold its final regular meeting of the board in June 2020 via remote technology. In order to conduct business, the State Bar asks the in-person voting requirement also be temporarily waived.
ORDER ISSUED: May 15, 2020
DISPOSITION: Request granted. Meeting and in-person voting requirements waived for the remaining fiscal year to end on June 30, 2020.
