2013 Resolution Process (aka The Road Show)
Unlike many state bars, the Idaho State Bar cannot take positions on legislative matters, rules of court,or substantive rules governing the Bar itself at its Annual Meeting or by act of its Bar Commissioners without first submitting such matters to the membership through the Resolution Process.
The Resolution Process is set forth in Idaho Bar Commission Rule 906. Resolutions may be submitted by a District Bar Association, the Board of Commissioners, a Bar committee, or an individual member of the Bar. Resolutions submitted by a District Bar Association, the Board of Commissioners, or the Idaho Supreme Court are automatically included in the resolution process.
Resolutions submitted are presented to the District Bar representatives and Board of Commissioners for consideration. This body votes on whether to circulate the resolution to the membership. Approved resolutions are mailed to each member of the Idaho State Bar. Included in the information mailed to members will be the text of each resolution and, if available, any additional information explaining the intent and purpose of the resolution. The deadline to submit resolutions was September 25, 2013.
The 2013 Resolution Process Voter Pamphlet is now available and was mailed to all voting members on October 17th. The schedule of District Bar Assocation meetings is listed below. As the District Bars finalize their meeting plans, additional meeting information will be added. Ballots will be available at all resolution meetings and mailed to those voting members who are unable to attend. Ballots may be submitted at the resolution meetings or mailed, faxed or delivered to the Idaho State Bar. All ballots were due in the Idaho State Bar office by the close of business on Monday, December 2, 2013.
