Ross does not have a specific assignment yet but will probably represent the committee at New England state bar meetings, the New England Bar Association (NEBA) annual meeting and will act as a resource for any state bar having an assistance request.
He currently serves as chair of the Nomination & Impact Resolutions Committee and expects to continue in that position in the next ABA year. He also serves on the Standing Committee on Membership, which he expects to continue for the next three years.
Other NHBA members active in ABA leadership are Stephen Tober, Russell Hilliard and Jaye Rancourt. Tober is on the ABA Board of Governors and is a member of its Operations Committee. Hilliard is the NHBA delegate to the ABA House of Delegates. Jaye Rancourt is on the Young Lawyers Division Executive Council.
