The at-large governor will be elected by the Board of Governors at its May 31 meeting. The candidates are Jenny Cochrane and Karen Denise Wilson.
The Board of Governors carries out the mission of the Bar and furthers the WSBA's Guiding Principles, all within the mandate of General Rule 12. Pursuant to Article IV (A) of the WSBA Bylaws, as a representative, each Governor is expected to communicate with members about Board actions and issues, convey member viewpoints to the Board, and to fulfill liaison duties as assigned. This year's elected Governors shall take office at the close of the final Board meeting of the fiscal year, scheduled for September 20-21, 2012. Governors are elected to a three-year term and are expected to complete their full term.
The WSBA Bylaws provide that any active member in good standing, except a member previously elected to the Board of Governors, may be nominated or apply for the office of governor from the congressional district (or geographical region within the 7th District*) in which such member is entitled to vote. Nominations or applications are made by filing a statement of interest and a biographical statement of 100 words or less.
