2014 Resolution Process (aka The Road Show)
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, 2014.
The 2014 Resolution Process Voter Pamphlet has been mailed to all voting members, as of October 16th. The schedule of District Bar Association 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 must be received in the Idaho State Bar office by the close of business on Monday, December 8, 2014.
