Leadership & Governance
The Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association is governed by its Board of Directors, pursuant to the Association’s Bylaws.Officers of the Association include the President, President-Elect, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary, who each serve a one-year term beginning upon their election at the Annual Meeting in December of each year.

Many members of the Board of Directors have risen to their positions through involvement in KCMBA’s Sections and Committees. As overseers of KCMBA’s seven practice area-specific sections, section presidents play a critical role in generating enthusiasm for Bar activities and producing relevant continuing legal education programs. Section presidents are supported in their efforts by many dedicated committee chairs, who lead their committee members in planning events and staying up-to-date on practice area developments.
