WSBA Volunteer Opportunities
There are many ways that members can volunteer to advance the mission and goals of the WSBA.
WSBA is accepting applications from WSBA members for an opening on the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) Board, for a three-year term, beginning Oct. 1. This Board oversees the administration of, and compliance with, MCLE rules and regulations, considers MCLE policy issues, and holds hearings on denied member petitions. The Board meets five to six times a year. MCLE Board members are nominated by the WSBA Board of Governors and appointed by the Washington Supreme Court.
Learn more about the board and apply today! The deadline for applications is Aug. 17. To apply, log in to myWSBA then click on this link: www.mywsba.org/CommitteeNomination.aspx. Please don’t apply for anything other than the MCLE Board as the deadline for other positions has passed. If you have problems completing the application, please contact Pam Inglesby at firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-727-8226.
Volunteer to promote professionalism in the legal community.
The Washington Young Lawyers Committee (WYLC) is a vehicle for new lawyers and law students to get involved with the Bar, and a home to network and enhance leadership skills. You can develop programs for new/young lawyers, serve on a WYLC subcommittee, or become a young lawyer liaison to a WSBA section.
The Access to Justice Board, a Washington Supreme Court-created board administered by the WSBA, works to achieve equal access to the civil justice system for those facing economic and other significant barriers. Volunteers are welcome to join any of the ATJ Board's many committees at any time of the year.
