Proposed Changes to Election of Regional Benchers

As part of its review of issues related to the bencher election, Convocation's Bencher Election Working Group has reviewed and is proposing changes to the process for electing Regional Benchers.

Before recommending changes to the process, the Working Group issued a call for input to invite comment from the profession on the proposed changes. Please see the document prepared for the call for input, based on the Working Group's report to Convocation. The deadline for submissions was September 30, 2013.  The Working Group is now considering the input, prior to reporting back to Convocation.
