In our ongoing effort to listen to and engage with WSBA members throughout the state, WSBA President Bill Pickett and Interim Executive Director Terra Nevitt are hitting the road, beginning in May. They’ll make stops in Kennewick, Yakima, the ATJ Conference, Kent, Bellevue, Newport, and more places to be announced soon. Members of the Board of Governors will also attend as they are able, especially at stops in their home districts.
These “listening stops” are your opportunity to ask questions, share ideas, and offer comments as WSBA seeks to ensure the bar of the future best meets your needs, the needs of the profession, and the public it serves.
All members are welcome to attend any of the scheduled stops. Your input matters, and we hope you’ll join us at a stop near you. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
