Michele Wong Krause, a Dallas-based solo practitioner, was nominated to the American Bar Association Board of Governors by its Nominating Committee at the 2018 ABA Midyear Meeting in Vancouver, Canada, and will be officially elected to her post for a three-year term by the ABA House of Delegates at its annual meeting in Chicago in August.

Krause, a former State Bar of Texas director from 2004 to 2007 and 2011 to 2014, is also a member of the Commission on Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts and was on the ABA Commission on Hispanic Legal Rights and Responsibilities from 2014 to 2017.

In her new role as an ABA governor, Krause will help oversee the operation of the ABA and develop plans of action. The board, along with the ABA House of Delegates, is responsible for policymaking and general organizational oversight while employees put to practice those policies.
