The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) is governed by a president who is elected annually, a past president, a board of directors and an executive committee. A new governance model has been developed.
CBA Sections are organized to study particular branches of law and pertinent issues of the day. All 32 Sections are administered by a CBA Section Executive Committee, generally composed of a chair, vice-chair, and treasurer.
Forums represent common interest groups and provide members with a voice and structure. All Forums are administered by a CBA Executive Committee composed of a chair, vice-chair, secretary-treasurer and chairs of all corresponding branch Sections, Forums or Committees. Members registered for a Forum are entitled to participate in the business and activities of that Forum, including voting and nomination for office.
The CBA's foundations and corporations that offer tailored products and services to members at special rates also operate through bylaws.
The Yukon Branch is governed by a president who is elected annually, a past president, vice-president and secretary-treasurer.
