WSBA Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways that members can volunteer to advance the mission and goals of the WSBA.

Disciplinary Advisory Round Table: application deadline Friday, Dec. 4, 2015

The WSBA Board of Governors is accepting letters of interest and resumes from WSBA members interested in serving on the Disciplinary Advisory Round Table (DART). Available positions include:

    • 1 active member not otherwise involved in the disciplinary process
    • 2 Respondent’s Counsel
    • 1 minority bar association member  

Member terms are for two years and meetings are generally held five to six times each year. DART was formed in 2010 by the BOG in consultation with the Washington Supreme Court. DART acts as a forum for the discussion of issues affecting the lawyer discipline system in Washington. DART reports annually to the BOG and the Supreme Court on recommendations for change and identification of issues concerning the discipline system. More information can be found on DART's web page

Please submit letters of interest and resumes to Darlene Neumann, WSBA Office of General Counsel, 1325 Fourth Avenue, Suite 600, Seattle, WA 98101 or email

Professionalism Initiatives

Volunteer to promote professionalism in the legal community. 

Washington Young Lawyers Committee
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. 

Access to Justice Board
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. 

Board of Governors
Elections for the WSBA Board of Governors take place in the spring. Watch your email and the Board Elections page for up-to-date news.

You can apply to serve on one or more of the Bar's many committees and boards. Positions for 2015-2016 are currently filled. Recruitment for 2016-2017 will begin late 2015.
