|Oregon State Bar Bulletin JULY 2009|
Leadership and Volunteer Opportunities
Most appointments are for terms of three years; however, if you are unable to make this lengthy commitment we suggest you consider volunteering on an episodic group. Serving on an episodic group allows you to determine the number of hours you give while continuing to enjoy the benefits of volunteering.
When submitting applications it is recommended that you attach a resume and a letter of interest. The Board of Governors is committed to ensuring that bar groups reflect the diversity of the membership, and they make every attempt to place each applicant in a volunteer position.
Candidates must be active bar members and in good standing to be considered for appointment. More information and an application form are available here, or contact Danielle Edwards at (503) 431-6246, or toll-free in Oregon at (800) 452-8260, ext. 426 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
