WSBA Volunteer Opportunities
There are many ways that members can volunteer to advance the mission and goals of the WSBA:
You can serve on a WSBA committee, board, council, panel, or task force. Applications for the 2013-2014 year are now being accepted through myWSBA. Before you apply, learn about open positions. The application deadline has been extended to March 29th and most positions begin October 1. Most committees offer members the option of participating in meetings remotely by telephone and/or video conferencing. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 206-727-8226.
There are immediate openings on the WSBA's Disciplinary Advisory Roundtable. Available positions include one WSBA member representative, two respondent's counsel, one minority bar association member, and two citizen representatives. Member terms are for two years and meetings are generally held 5 to 6 times per year. The purpose of DART is to act as a forum for the discussion of issues affecting the lawyer discipline system in Washington. Please submit letters of interest and resumes by April 1 to Darlene Neumann, WSBA Office of General Counsel, 1325 4th Avenue, Suite 600, Seattle WA 98101, or by email to email@example.com.
The Washington Young Lawyers Committee (WYLC) is a vehicle for new lawyers and law students to get involved with the WSBA, 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 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.
Elections for the WSBA Board of Governors are held annually. Watch your email and the BOG Elections page for up-to-date news.
Other organizations often ask WSBA to appoint or nominate individuals to serve on their committees and boards. Watch your email and the Need to Know section of NWLawyer for notices of upcoming opportunities.
