Volunteering with WSBA

Volunteers are vital to the work of the WSBA and the legal community. Year after year, WSBA members and members of the public and staff work together to further the mission of the Bar: to serve the public and the members, ensure the integrity of the legal profession and to champion justice.

Volunteers provide important skills, experiences, and perspectives necessary to steer the organization.

WSBA Celebrated National Volunteer Week!

In honor of National Volunteer Week (April 18-24, 2021), the WSBA would like to express it's appreciation for the over 1,000 volunteers who work earnestly throughout the year to further the mission of the WSBA. This includes members of our committees, boards, panels, council,  section executive committees and foundation trustees. These members make a multi-year commitment of time and skill toward important and impactful work. Additionally, CLE faculty, Bar News and NWSidebar contributors share their insights, experiences, and talents time and time again. Thank you!

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and grows exponentially each year. National Volunteer Week is celebrated around the country with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled. It is an opportunity to honor the impact of all those who do good in our communities, and inspire others to make a difference and improve the world.
