New at-large positions on the Board of Governors
The Washington Supreme Court in January 2018 passed an order to codify the Board of Governors’ decision to add three new positions to its ranks — two community at-large seats and one limited license legal technician/limited practice officer at-large seat. The Board decided at its special April 2018 meeting to convene a work group to recommend whether and how to bring on these new positions. Further updates will be posted here.
