Washington, DC — Today, the American Constitution Society (ACS) announced the selection of Owen Flomberg as the new student member of ACS’s Board of Directors.
Flomberg will serve a two-year term on the board.
"I am honored to welcome one of our outstanding ACS Next Generation Leaders, Owen Flomberg, to serve as a student member on our Board of Directors,” said Holly Fechner, member of the ACS Board of Directors and Chair of the Nominations & Board Governance Committee. “During his time at Washington University Law School in St. Louis, Owen has grown his student chapter, developed a local Constitution in the Classroom (CITC) program, and led other pro-democracy advocacy and election protection efforts. Our Board will benefit greatly from his experience and voice.”
Flomberg, a rising third-year law student at Washington University Law School , was the co-president of his campus’s ACS student chapter. In his leadership capacity, he has helped grow membership by over 75 percent and led a task force working to implement Election Day class cancellation ahead of this year's midterms. In addition to his work with ACS, this spring Flomberg served as an intern for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and for the Democratic National Committee's Voter Protection and Civic Engagement Division. Flomberg will be working this summer with Land of Lincoln Legal Aid in East St. Louis and with the Oglala Sioux Tribe’s Legal Department.
“I am so incredibly honored and excited to be joining the ACS Board of Directors for the next two years,” said Flomberg. “During law school, ACS has been my home. Not only has it been a great way to meet other like-minded legal professionals, but ACS has also provided me with many opportunities to grow and develop as a future progressive lawyer. I look forward to working with the rest of the board to grow the organization and to provide law student members with the support they need as they plan and initiate the early stages of their legal career.”
