Manitoba Bar Association Governance

The Manitoba Bar Association (MBA), a branch of the Canadian Bar Association, is governed by a president who is elected annually. The president works with an Executive Committee consisting of four other elected members.

Our structure includes a MBA Branch Council that meets four times a year to make policy decisions. Committees are also appointed as needed.

The MBA currently has 37 active Sections. Sections are groups of members who practise in a particular area of the law or share a common goal or interest.  Registration in a MBA Section automatically enrolls the member in the corresponding National Section.  Members registered for a Section are entitled to participate in the business and activities of that Section, including voting and nomination for office.
