By-Laws of the Pre-Law Advisors National Council


Every two years, the PLANC Board elects two members to the Executive team. In 2019, the Board will vote on a PLANC Chair-Elect and PLANC Treasurer.

  • The PLANC Chair-Elect will begin a six-year term of leadership service to PLANC. The pre-law advisor who serves in this role will be chair-elect of PLANC from 2019 to 2021, chair from 2021 to 2023, and past-chair from 2023 to 2025. Prior service on the PLANC Board of Directors as an APLA President or APLA designated representative is not required, but helpful.

  • The PLANC Treasurer will serve a two-year term of service from 2019 to 2021. This individual will play a significant role not only in regards to PLANC’s normal budget cycle, but will be an instrumental member of the financial team leading up to, during, and immediately after the next quadrennial conference in 2020.

Nominations for each of the PLANC Executive team positions are being accepted online through Friday, January 25, 2019. Self-nominations are welcome! Questions about either opportunity can be directed to RJ Holmes-Leopold, PLANC Chair via email at
