Governance Town Hall

WSBA Governance Town Hall

The WSBA has been examining its governance structure over the last several months, with a task force leading the efforts to explore a number of questions, such as:
  • Should Board members be elected or appointed?
  • Should the WSBA Board include representation from non-lawyers?
  • How many members should comprise the board? How long should a board term be?
  • What should the board focus on, and what is their primary role?
  • Should there be pre-qualifications in order to serve on the board? If so, what are they?
  • Should there be a different approach to diversity appointments to the board?

As key stakeholders, the Governance Task Force is now seeking your input as it deliberates the types of questions posed above. By late fall the Task Force will submit a proposal to the Washington State Supreme Court, and that report will incorporate feedback and comments provided by the WSBA membership.

Please join two members of the task force, both former WSBA Board of Governors members — Nancy Isserlis and Doug Lawrence — who will lead a Town Hall discussion around WSBA Governance, on Monday, Aug. 12, from noon–1:30 at the WSBA Conference Center located at 1501 4th Ave #308, Seattle, or join via webcast from your desktop.
