LACBA Committee Nominates Steinbrecher as President-Elect


By a MetNews Staff Writer


The Los Angeles County Bar Association yesterday announced the nomination of Alan K. Steinbrecher as its president-elect for the 2009 to 2010 term.

Steinbrecher, of Steinbrecher & Span LLP, currently serves as the associationís senior vice president and heads the list of nominees the organization announced for its officer and trustee posts.

Absent any challengers, an historically unlikely occurrence, the nominees are expected to be elected on June 22 for terms beginning July 1.

LACBAís 19-person nominating committee also selected current Vice President Eric A. Webber as its candidate for senior vice president, and Howrey partner Richard J. Burdge Jr. for the post currently held by Webber.

Those nominated for the six at-large trustee positions were current Assistant Vice President Anthony Paul Diaz, Beverly Hills attorney Paul R. Kiesel of Kiesel Boucher & Larson LLP, and current trustees Beatriz D. Dieringer, Brian D. Huben, Ellen A. Pansky, and Ann I. Park.

The Black Women Lawyers Association of L.A. Inc., the Santa Monica Bar Association and Alec S. Rose, as well as one nominee to be determined, were nominated for LACBAís open rotating affiliate trustee positions.

Any eligible LACBA member who was not nominated by the committee may run for a board seat after submitting a written nomination form signed by at least 25 members. Similarly, current or former trustees may run for the three highest executive committee posts by filing a written nomination that at least 25 members have signed.

Nomination forms are available at LACBAís offices.
