LACBA staff decided to rent the largest downtown hotel ballroom, with a capacity of approximately 2,000.
For LACBA's board, the challenge was made more formidable by the Ad Hoc Committee Opposing the Politicization of the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
The LACBA president and executive director and select members of the ad hoc committee discussed alternatives to the special meeting, such as a membership survey or plebiscite, board reconsideration of its earlier vote on the abortion resolution, and passage of a board resolution recognizing the underlying concerns of the ad hoc committee.
Although no alternatives to the special meeting were agreed upon, the informal discussions did resolve the issue of the ad hoc committee's "ballot." LACBA leadership decided against publicly questioning the committee's motives.
As the day of the special meeting drew closer, LACBA's president developed the theme of "strength through diversity within the membership" for his remarks at the meeting.
