Hirani joins the YLD Board of Governors
Kevin T. McGavock has withdrawn from the race for the Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors, Ninth Circuit, Seat 1 race.
McGavock dropped out a week after the December 15 filing deadline. His action means that Arti A. Hirani is unopposed and has won election to that seat.
Fifteen other candidates are still contesting five other seats for the YLD board in the upcoming March Bar elections. Those races are in the 11th, 13th, and 17th circuits.
Ballots in those races, as well as for the two contested seats on the Bar Board of Governors, will be mailed around March 1, and must be returned to the Bar’s election company by 11:59 p.m. on March 22. Bar members will again have the option of casting a paper ballot or voting online. Instructions will be included with the mailed ballots. Any runoffs will be conducted between April 1 and April 22.
