Please Join President Jason Clark and the
Officers and Board of Directors of the MBBA for
The 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting and Elections
The Metropolitan Black Bar Association's (MBBA) Nominating Committee has nominated eight candidates for election as Officers and to the Board of Directors. Members are invited to vote for the board-approved slate of candidates during the MBBA Annual Meeting.
This year, the MBBA undertook a comprehensive review of the MBBA's By-laws with the goal of identifying appropriate revisions. The Board has approved the proposed amendments, which fall into two categories: (i) compliance with the New York Not-for-Profit Corporation Law and (ii) updating procedures. Members are invited to vote on a resolution to approve the amended and restated By-laws during the MBBA Annual Meeting.
The Annual Meeting Notice Period is now open.
Given the current COVID-19 situation, the Annual Meeting will be held via a virtual meeting platform rather than in-person. You are invited to attend the MBBA's Annual Meeting on Tuesday, June 23 at 6:00 pm via the Zoom virtual platform. Information on how to register and log into the Annual Meeting is available on the MBBA website events calendar.
