The House of Delegates is the policy-making body of the American Bar Association (ABA) and meets twice a year, at the ABA Midyear and ABA Annual Meetings. The State Bar appoints a total of four delegates. State Bar delegates are part of the California delegation, headed by the elected State Delegate. Other delegates of the California delegation include those appointed by local bar associations, ABA sections and divisions, and former officers and ABA board members.
In addition to the annual delegate appointments, the State Bar may also select one or more alternates to serve in place of any appointed delegate who is unable to attend the midyear or annual meetings.
