WSBA Bylaw Article III, Section H.5. provides for License Fee Exemptions Due to Hardship.
In case of proven extreme financial hardship, which must entail a current household income equal to or less than 200% of the federal poverty level as determined at the time of the application for hardship exemption, the Executive Director may grant a one-time exemption from payment of annual license fees by any Active member. Hardship exemptions are for one licensing period only, and a request must be submitted on or before February 1st of the year for which the exemption is requested. Denial of an exemption request is not appealable.
