Rule 1-207. Change of Address

Organization of the State Bar & Admissions / Part I - Creation & Organization / CHAPTER 2 MEMBERSHIP / Rule 1-207. Change of Address

All members of the State Bar of Georgia shall keep the membership department of the State Bar of Georgia informed of their current name, official address and telephone number. The Court and the State Bar of Georgia may rely on the official address given to the membership department and failure on the part of a member to notify the membership department may have adverse consequences to a member. The choice of a member to use only a post office box address on the Bar membership records shall constitute an election to waive personal service in any proceedings between the Bar and the member. Notification given to any department of the Bar other than the Membership Department shall not satisfy this requirement.
