The annual election of members of the Executive Council of the Family Law Section will occur in May, 2017. Ten (10) positions will be vacant, as well as the office of Treasurer. The Executive Council is the governing body of the Family Law Section, and as such, has a direct connection to the legislature, the courts, and the executive branch for over 1000 family law attorneys in the State of Colorado.

The Executive Council meets monthly in Denver from September to May. There are numerous committees ranging from the Legislative Committee, the Newsletter Committee, the Young Lawyers Committee, to the Planning Committee for the Family Law Institute. This is an exciting opportunity for all family law attorneys who want to become more involved in the improvement of the practice for family law attorneys, and in the improvement of the judicial system for family law matters.

A nomination petition signed by at least 5 members of the Family Law Section must be submitted by 5:00 PM, March 17, 2017. Attorneys from districts outside the Denver Metro area are especially encouraged to submit nomination petitions. The By laws of the Section require that four members-at-large must come from areas outside the Denver Metro area (Denver, JeffCo, Adams, Broomfield, Arapahoe and Douglas Counties).
