Belinda Macauley Named Beverly Hills Bar Association’s New Executive Director
The Beverly Hills Bar Association (BHBA) announced March 4 that Belinda Macauley had joined the organization as its new Executive Director.
“We are thrilled to welcome Belinda and are confident she will build on the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s long history of providing our members with networking, business development, education, advocacy, and community service opportunities,” said BHBA President, Michael R. Sohigian. “We are especially excited to have her join us as we expand our services to meet the changing needs of the legal profession, including by providing technology and workspace solutions to our members.”
Macauley comes to BHBA after more than two decades practicing law and serving in the senior management of national nonprofit organizations. She began her career as a deputy district attorney in northern California at the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office and continued practicing law in Washington, DC, including as deputy legal director of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a national advocacy organization. She later served as vice president of Kinsella Media, LLC, a litigation consulting firm, and spent the last five years as vice president of development and senior counsel at a leading legal nonprofit, the American Constitution Society.
“I am delighted to join an organization that does so much to help its members and the greater Los Angeles region,” said Macauley, who grew up in California before receiving her B.A. from the University of Washington and J.D. from The George Washington University Law School. “I look forward to continuing BHBA’s legacy of offering its members opportunities to network, expand their expertise, grow their client base, and serve those who can’t otherwise access justice. I am grateful for the chance to lead such a distinguished and enthusiastic association of lawyers who deeply value serving both our profession and our community.”
