Meet the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, the at-large Governors, and your elected representatives.
The Board of Governors meets 7 times per year at locations across the state. Meetings are open to the public, except for executive sessions. Materials are available online before the meeting. The next Board of Governors meeting will be held on November 8–9 in Seattle.
The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA. The Board moves the Bar forward with an eye toward both its long-standing mission and guiding principles, and its short-term strategic goals.
The following bylaw amendments were adopted at the November 8, 2013, Board of Governors meeting. Amendment to Art. III. Membership. B. Register of MembersThis amendment requires all WSBA members to furnish an email address. The bylaw amendment is a result of the amendments to the Admission to Practice Rules (APR) which includes an amendment to APR 13 that makes it mandatory for members to provide the WSBA with an email address. The APR amendments become effective January 1, 2014.Amendment to Art. VI. Elections B. 1. Nominations and ApplicationsThis amendment provides that applications for Governors elected from Congressional Districts shall be filed in the office of the Bar not later than 5:00 p.m., on the 15th day of February of the year in which the election is to be held. The amendment moved the application filing deadline two weeks earlier, from the previous deadline of March 1. The amendment permits WSBA staff and the candidates for election to the Board of Governors sufficient time to prepare and compile information to be used in the election process, which will assist in assuring that WSBA members receive as much information as possible about the candidates.
Meet Paula Littlewood, WSBA Executive Director
