The WSBA Board of Governors is accepting letters of interest and résumés from members interested in serving on the American Bar Association (ABA) House of Delegates representing the WSBA. Four positions are available for two-year terms beginning in August 2016. 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 provides an allowance of $800 per year per delegate.  Members may serve a maximum of three consecutive terms. Those serving on the ABA House of Delegates must be ABA members in good standing throughout their terms.
