Members of the Board of Governors

WSBA Governance

The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA that determines the general policies of the Bar and approves its budget each year. The board moves the Bar forward with an eye toward its long-standing mission, guiding principles, and short-term strategic goals. The board consists of the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, and members elected from each congressional district and at-large.

Your Congressional District is listed on myWSBA (log in required). You can also enter your home address (or if you live out of state, your agent of service address) on this congressional district map. Choose "Congressional," select "Find My District," and then the map next to the symbol marking your address.

See proposed amendments to the Bylaws 

UPDATE: per Washington Supreme Court directive, all Board action on proposed bylaw amendments is deferred until further Court notice.
