The Houston Bar Association adopted the following policy for speakers at HBA events:
All HBA members, including judges and candidates for public office, can serve as speakers at HBA events and programs. There should be no active campaigning, no literature distributed, no buttons worn, essentially nothing to indicate that a member or judge is in a contested race for office, and nothing urging a favorable vote. All HBA members, including judges and judicial candidates, may serve on HBA committees.
