Public Member Volunteer Opportunities

Public members play a vital role on several Oregon State Bar boards and committees by helping the Board of Governors understand the views, opinions, and concerns of the public. This is an invaluable part of the state bar governance and allows a broader perspective as we work to support a healthy, effective justice system in Oregon.

Those who complete the online application by July 11 will be considered for appointments in 2023. Candidates should be Oregon residents but not active or inactive members of the Oregon State Bar. The Board of Governors is committed to serving and valuing its diverse community and ensuring that bar groups reflect the diversity in Oregon.
