Board of Governors

The State Bar of Arizona Board of Governors oversees the policy making and operations of the organization. The Board is comprised of 29 people: four non-attorney, public members, three at-large members and three district governors appointed by the Arizona Supreme Court; 16 attorney members elected by fellow Bar members in their district; and three ex-officio members (immediate past president/board advisor and the deans of Arizona's two law schools).
