ABA House of Delegates

Application deadline: June 2, 2015

The WSBA Board of Governors is accepting applications from members interested in serving on the American Bar Association (ABA) House of Delegates to represent the WSBA. 

The control and administration of the ABA are vested in the House of Delegates, the policymaking body of the ABA. The House, composed of approximately 550 delegates, elects the ABA officers and board, and meets out-of-state twice a year. Delegate attendance is required (to ensure full voting capacity exists at all times, an alternate will attend if one of the delegates were unable to attend a meeting.)   The WSBA’s travel allowance is $800 per year per delegate. Those serving on the ABA House of Delegates must be ABA members in good standing throughout their terms.

Four positions are available, including one position for a member under 36 years of age, and one alternate position. Two-year terms begin in August after the ABA’s annual meeting; members may serve a maximum of three consecutive terms.

Submit letters of interest and résumés to the WSBA Communications Department, 1325 Fourth Ave., Ste. 600, Seattle, WA 98101-2539; or e-mail barleaders@wsba.org.
