Leadership Opportunities - Conference Planning Coordinators


The Conference Planning Committee includes eleven members, plus the Chair and any Vice Chairs appointed by the President. Conference Planning Coordinators serve a one-year term.

Elected Conference Planning Coordinators: General regions elect one Conference Planning Coordinator, alternating each year between a law school member representative and an employer member representative (e.g., in even-numbered years, including this 2024 election cycle, three general regions –Mid-Atlantic, Southeast & West/Rocky Mountain—elect Conference Planning Coordinators representing employer members, and two general regions—Midwest and Northeast elect Conference Planning Coordinators representing school members). Each limited region elects one Conference Planning Coordinator  - who may be either a school or employer member to serve a one-year term.
