Nominating petitions for positions on the Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors must be received in The Florida Bar headquarters office on or before 5 p.m., December 15.

Executive Director Joshua E. Doyle on October 1 certified to Todd Backer, YLD president, the number of YLD members of The Florida Bar in good standing in each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits and outside the state of Florida, and the number of circuit representatives based on the apportionment formula set forth in Art. V, Section 5 of the YLD bylaws.

Members of the Young Lawyers Division may be nominated for the board from the circuits indicated by their official Bar address if they will not have reached the age of 36 before July 1 or, if age 36 or older by such date, will not have been admitted to practice in any jurisdiction for more than 5 years. To be nominated, a member must submit a nominating petition signed by no fewer than five members of the Young Lawyers Division in good standing in that circuit. Nominations must specify the seat number that is being sought. Nominees shall endorse their written acceptance on such petitions, but no nominees shall accept a nomination for more than one seat. Should you decide to change seats, you must submit another nomination form prior to 5 p.m. on December 15. On a date to be fixed by the president-elect, the nominating petitions shall be canvassed and tabulated by the executive director and he shall thereupon certify in writing the names of all members who have been properly nominated.
