WSBA Governance



The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA that determines the general policies of the Bar and approves its budget each year. The board moves the Bar forward with an eye toward its long-standing mission, guiding principles, and short-term strategic goals. The board consists of the President, and members elected from each Congressional District and at-large.

Your Congressional District is listed on myWSBA (log in required). You can also enter your home address (or if you live out of state, your agent of service address) on this congressional district map. Choose "Congressional," select "Find My District," and then the map next to the symbol marking your address.


2022 Bar Structure Study


The Board of Governors recently launched the 2022 Bar Structure Study undertaken by a Board study group known as ETHOS — Examining the Historical Organization and Structure of the Bar. Ethos is meeting monthly through August to study potential future legal changes that could affect the organization of the Bar and report findings and recommendations to the Washington Supreme Court. Meetings are open to the public. Learn more here.
