2017 Board of Governors Elections

Five positions on the WSBA Board of Governors are up for election in 2017. These are the governors representing the 3rd, 6th, 7th-North, and 8th congressional districts and one at-large position. The three-year term of office begins Sept. 29, 2017.


District positions
Any active attorney WSBA member except one previously elected to the Board of Governors may be nominated or may self-nominate and run for the office of governor from the congressional district in which the member is registered to vote.

At-large position
One of the three at-large positions is open in 2017. Under WSBA’s Bylaws, the purpose of this position is to increase diversity and representation on the Board, and the position is to be filled by an active attorney WSBA member who has “the experience and knowledge of the needs of those lawyers whose membership is or may be historically under-represented in governance, or who represents some of the diverse elements of the public of the State of Washington.” This position is elected by the Board of Governors.

Nominations will open in early 2017, and elections are held in April/May. Look for more information in January on how to run for an open seat. If you have questions in the meantime, please email them to barleaders@wsba.org.
