This winter the Constitution and Bylaws Committee (Yaron Dori, Diane Holland, Megan Anne Stull, and Josh Turner) reviewed the FCBA’s Constitution and Bylaws to ensure that they accurately describe the FCBA’s current practices and provide a solid foundation for the future.  The Committee has proposed several areas for clarification and improvement, and these areas will be presented to the Officers and Executive Committee for their consideration and for a vote at their April 28, 2021 meeting.

  • The proposed changes to the Constitution would: (i) provide the FCBA with greater flexibility in how it describes itself in marketing materials; (ii) clarify the FCBA’s evolving focus on technology law and policy; (iii) update the description of the membership application process to more accurately reflect the role of the Executive Director in that process; (iv) update the description of the Assistant Secretary role to more accurately reflect current practices; (v) update the description of the Young Lawyers Committee representative to the Executive Committee to more accurately reflect current practices; and (vi) make other ministerial and conforming changes.
  • The proposed changes to the Bylaws would: (i) include updates to more accurately describe the Executive Director’s responsibilities; (ii) update the description of the Assistant Secretary role; (iii) reorganize sections on committees to allow for greater flexibility as communications and technology laws evolve over time; and (iv) update the membership description to reflect current practices with regard to retired members.

FCBA members are invited to review the documents and to raise any concerns about the proposed changes to Megan Anne Stull at stull@google.com by April 14, 2021.
