Officers

While the overall governance and structure of the State Bar are established by Supreme Court Rule, members control the association's day-to-day operations, finances and strategic planning. The president is the chief elected officer of the association. The president, president-elect, immediate past president, secretary and treasurer are ex-officio members of the Board of Governors (BOG), which directs the State Bar's affairs. The treasurer also assists the Executive Committee in preparing the annual budget.
