Leadership and Volunteer Opportunities

Member involvement on boards, committees, and other bar groups keeps the bar responsive to the needs of its membership and is vital to the ability of the bar to provide services to its members and the public. The Board of Governors is committed to serving and valuing its diverse community and ensuring that bar groups reflect the diversity of the membership. Every attempt is made to place each applicant in a volunteer position.

Most appointments are for terms of three years; however, if you are unable to make this lengthy commitment the bar also offers episodic volunteering. Serving on an episodic group allows you to determine the number of hours you give while continuing to enjoy the benefits of volunteering.

Members volunteering prior to September 6 will be considered for appointments with terms beginning January 1. Candidates must be active bar members and in good standing to be considered for appointment.
