IV, Sec. 11) are incorporated within these guidelines. 2.01.02 Definitions. (A) Subcommittee. The Nominations and Elections Subcommittee of the Executive Committee of the State Bar of Texas.

The period beginning when candidates are approved by the board and ending on the date the ballots are distributed. (G) Professional Acquaintance. A member of the State Bar, including those on inactive status, who a soliciting attorney or potential nominee, nominee, or candidate knows personally, has met personally during the campaign period, or who are in the same professional affiliation. An attorney who individually and directly contacts a candidate requesting information about the candidate’s campaign or position will be considered a professional acquaintance of the candidate. Mere knowledge of the attorney by name or reputation or membership in the same professional, social, or alumni organization; specialty bar; section; or similar organization does not qualify as a professional acquaintance. (H) Professional Affiliation. The firm, company, or employer of the person. (I) Endorsement. A statement (oral or in writing) and/or any electronic communication, by a member of the State Bar of Texas stating or publishing support for a potential nominee, nominee, or candidate. Endorsement does not include a member of the State Bar identifying the person for whom he or she will vote if asked by another. (J) Social Media. Websites and internet-based applications that enable users to create and share content and/or to participate in social networking, including, but not limited to, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+. 2.01.03 Election. The president-elect shall be elected by vote of a majority of those members of the State Bar who voted in such election. Such election shall be held in April or May of each year. The person so elected shall assume the office of president-elect at the next annual meeting following the succession of the then president-elect to the office of president. 2.01.04 Qualifications. Any member of the State Bar who meets the eligibility requirements for officers set forth in the State Bar Act and the State Bar Rules is eligible for nomination for president-elect, provided such member is not currently serving as a board member. 2.01.05 Nominations. At its regularly scheduled second quarterly meeting each year, the board, on recommendation by the subcommittee, shall nominate by a majority vote two or more members of the State Bar to be candidates and to stand for election to the office of president-elect for the next organizational year. Any other qualified member shall also be privileged to stand for election to that office as a candidate when a written petition, in a form prescribed by the board and signed by no less than five percent of the active members of the State Bar who are in good standing, is filed by or on behalf of such member with the executive director on or before March 1 preceding the election for the ensuing organizational year and such petition is certified by the executive director. The executive director shall either certify or reject such petition within five business days following receipt of the petition by the executive director. Any disputes arising from the executive director’s decision shall be resolved by the Nominations and Elections Subcommittee in accordance with Subsection 2.01.17 and the State Bar Rules. 2.01.06 Candidate Pools. The potential nominees for president-elect shall be selected from three different candidate pools that rotate on a three-year cycle. In the first year of that cycle, the potential nominees shall be selected from State Bar members whose principal office is in Bexar, Dallas, Harris, Tarrant, or Travis counties. In the second year of the cycle, the potential nominees shall be selected from State Bar members whose principal office is outside the five metropolitan counties cited above. In the third or “open” year of the cycle, the potential nominees shall be selected from the candidate pool of all State Bar members, without regard for the county of their principal office. In any year of any three-year cycle, the board may nominate two or more nominees from the same county. 2.01.07 Selection of Candidates. The board shall select president-elect candidates as follows: (A) In August, preceding the second quarterly meeting at which the board selects candidates, the subcommittee chair(s) shall notify Texas bar associations representing the State Bar’s diverse membership and State Bar sections, divisions, and committees that the nominee selection process has begun. The chair(s) of the subcommittee shall request from those groups the names and background information of potential nominees, explaining the criteria for selection described in Subsection (C). (B) The subcommittee shall state its intent to solicit potential nominees by distributing notice on the State Bar website and by publishing notice in the September issues of the Texas Bar Journal, the Texas Lawyers’ Civil Digest, and the Texas Lawyers’ Criminal Digest. The publication shall contain the criteria for nominee selection described in Subsections 2.01.04, 2.01.06, and 2.01.07(C). Anyone submitting a name for consideration should first obtain that person’s written consent to have his or her name submitted. (C) Subject to Subsections 2.01.04 and 2.01.06, any member in good standing with the State Bar is eligible for nomination, provided such member is not currently serving as a board member. The subcommittee shall select qualified nominees and choose its nominees with the objective of ensuring that, over a period of years, the office of the president includes men and women; ethnic and racial diversity; lawyers from large, medium, and small firms and solo practitioners; and members from urban and rural areas of the state. In doing so, the subcommittee shall consider a potential candidate’s involvement in State Bar committee work, knowledge of State Bar operations, participation in local and specialty bar associations, other activities demonstrating leadership ability, and sincere interest and competence in dealing with issues concerning the State Bar of Texas. Although prior membership on the board is not a prerequisite to nomination, it should be considered in determining whether a lawyer is a qualified potential nominee. (D) The subcommittee may also solicit potential nominees whose names have not been submitted through the process described in Subsections 2.01.07(A) and (B). Persons solicited as potential nominees must meet the criteria described in Subsection 2.01.07(C). (E) As part of the selection process, each potential nominee should be asked to submit a resume and a brief statement indicating the reasons for his or her interest in serving as president. The subcommittee may interview potential nominees. The travel expenses incurred by a potential nominee in attending such an interview will be reimbursed by the State Bar. (F) The subcommittee shall submit to the board the names of two or more qualified nominees for president-elect. 2.01.08 Notification of Nomination. (A) Insofar as it is possible, the nominees recommended by the subcommittee should be notified at the same time. (B) The candidates nominated by the board should be notified at the same time. 2.01.09 Announcement of Nominations. As soon as reasonably practicable after the candidates for president-elect are selected by the board, the names of the candidates, the counties of their principal offices, and their biographical information, together with the procedure for additional nominations by petition under the State Bar Rules, shall be published on the State Bar website and in the Texas Bar Journal. 2.01.10 Campaign Activities. (A) Potential nominees may discuss their prospective candidacies with any partners or management in their law firm, as needed, to be sure that the potential nominees will agree to be a candidate, if approved by the board. (B) Potential nominees or nominees recommended by the subcommittee may not campaign before their official nominations by the board. (C) Potential nominees or nominees may confirm to others that they are potential nominees or nominees prior to actual nomination by the board. (D) The nominees may not campaign until they have met with the subcommittee as required in Subsection 2.01.11 or immediately following the adjournment of the board meeting at which they are nominated, whichever is the latest, and must cease campaigning on the date the ballots are distributed (the “campaign period”). Once the campaign period ends, candidates may not continue to contact State Bar members or solicit or encourage others to do so. (E) Candidates may not campaign outside their offices before March 1 or after the ballots are distributed, except for meetings held outside of their offices but within the counties of their principal offices for the purposes of planning future campaign activities. (F) Candidates may confirm to others that they are candidates at any time prior to the out-of-office campaign period when the candidate is out of the office conducting normal and customary business. (G) Candidates may not solicit, approve, or condone communications by local bars, specialty bars, law school alumni associations, bar association sections or committees, or other bar-related groups seeking support and/or endorsement. (H) No candidate, or anyone acting on the candidate’s behalf, may solicit votes by mailings, faxes, or emails to selected groups within the State Bar or by mailings, faxes, or emails to local or specialty bars, unless every member of such selected group within the State Bar and/or such local or specialty bars is a professional acquaintance of the person making the contact. (I) Candidates may not solicit, approve, or condone communications in any publications other than the State Bar website and the Texas Bar Journal. When candidates are aware that non-State Bar publications have covered or plan to cover the election, in the interest of fairness, the candidates should ask the publication to provide equal time to both candidates. (J) Paid solicitations through the use of telephone, email, or other methods of communication are prohibited. (K) Candidates may not solicit or publicize endorsements from local or specialty bar groups, board members, employees of the State Bar, or any public official. (L) Members of the board, in their official capacity, and State Bar staff may not endorse nor express support for a candidate for president-elect. (M) Nothing herein shall prohibit a potential nominee, nominee, or candidate from establishing a steering committee or group consisting of professional acquaintances of the potential nominee, nominee, or candidate for the purpose of assisting the potential nominee, nominee, or candidate in the campaign prior to the commencement of, or during, the campaign period. Prior to the time an individual has been designated by the board as a candidate, steering committees shall be limited to no more than 50 professional acquaintances of the potential nominee or nominee. (N) One-to-one, individualized telephone calls, letters, faxes, or emails expressing support for a candidate to professional acquaintances of the individual caller or sender are permitted during the campaign period. Telephone calls made by a candidate to any individual attorneys are permitted during the campaign period. Email lists and group emails are not allowed unless every person on the email list or email group is a professional acquaintance of the sender. (O) Any board member may answer questions posed to the board member about a candidate’s qualifications. (P) Attendance by nominees at the TYLA Board of Directors meeting, local and/or specialty bar association meetings, or other events is allowed, if all nominees are invited and if approved by the subcommittee chair(s). (Q) In exceptional circumstances, such as invitations to speak made by the TYLA Board of Directors, local and/or specialty bar associations, or other events, the candidates may jointly apply to the subcommittee chair(s) for a dispensation to undertake campaigning for that specific purpose outside the office before March 1. (R) During the campaign period, the candidates may establish social media pages or accounts for campaigning purposes. Prior to using social media to campaign, each candidate must send to the chair(s) of the subcommittee written notice of the intent to use social media, including the URL of each social media page or account the candidate has established for campaign use. (S) After the end of the campaign period, if a person contacts a candidate seeking information concerning the candidate, his or her position, or campaign, the candidate may only refer the person to the Texas Bar Journal article, the State Bar website, the candidate’s brochure, or the candidate’s campaign website or campaign social media. 2.01.11 Meeting with the Subcommittee Chair(s). The candidates shall meet jointly with the subcommittee chair(s) to discuss election rules and procedures before the beginning of the campaign period. Travel and lodging expenses for the candidate and his or her spouse to attend this meeting will be reimbursed by the State Bar independently of campaign expenditures described in Subsection 2.01.14. 2.01.12 Distribution of Ballots. A combined ballot for the office of president-elect and for the office of director may be used in bar districts in which an election for director is to be conducted. On April 1, or on the first working day following April 1 if April 1 falls on a weekend, an official ballot listing the names of all candidates for president-elect and candidates for director shall be distributed to each member of the State Bar who is entitled to vote. 2.01.13 Campaign Brochures. Each candidate is responsible for the design and content of a single campaign brochure, which shall be used as the candidate’s sole handout or electronic attachment for the campaign. (A one-page resume may be used for appearances permitted under these guidelines if the campaign brochure is not available.) The State Bar will print the brochures in a four-color process, using the same size and quality of paper for each candidate’s brochure. (A) In designing the brochures, candidates should: (1) seek to be as informative as possible; (2) limit photographs to pictures of the candidate and his or her family; and (3) neither refer to nor cite endorsements of the candidate by groups or individuals. (B) The subcommittee chair(s) will approve all brochures before printing to ensure compliance with the guidelines.

Each candidate for the office of president-elect shall not expend more than $20,000 in campaign expenses, including expenses for transportation and lodging during the campaign. The candidates may agree on a different amount not to exceed $25,000. The State Bar shall reimburse each candidate up to $15,000 for actual out-of-pocket campaign expenditures, which may include transportation and lodging costs for the candidate and his or her spouse. This reimbursement is in addition to, and not in lieu of, campaign expenses paid directly by the State Bar, provided, however, that if in any year there are more than two candidates, the aggregate amount of reimbursements by the State Bar shall not exceed a total of $30,000 for all candidates, and no one candidate will be entitled to a reimbursement exceeding a per capita share. Candidates shall submit verified reports of all campaign expenditures, including expenses for transportation and lodging, within 45 days after the campaign ends. 2.01.15 Online Campaign Activities. Candidates may campaign online during the campaign period by use of a personal campaign website and/or campaign social media.

During the campaign period, a candidate may respond to questions or comments posted on the candidate’s campaign social media pages or accounts, subject to Subsection (D).

(D) A candidate who chooses to maintain a campaign social media presence is responsible for monitoring all posts and comments on his or her campaign social media, both during and after the campaign period, with the objective of assuring civility and professionalism in the campaign, and should promptly remove content or comments that are offensive, contain vulgar language, or include personal attacks of any kind, or which are repetitive or intrusive and might be considered spam. (E) After the end of the campaign period, a candidate’s campaign website and/or campaign social media page may remain online; provided, however, that a candidate or anyone at the candidate’s direction may not post any additional information on the campaign website or campaign social media after the end of the campaign period. 2.01.16 Campaign Conduct. The candidates and their supporters shall make a reasonable effort to conduct the campaign in a professional and dignified manner.

(A) If no candidate for president-elect receives a majority vote, a run-off election shall be held at such time as the board prescribes between the two candidates receiving the greatest number of votes.
