Serving on a Board

Application deadline is March 1, 2019

Applications are now being accepted from member of the public interested in serving on one of the boards housed at the state bar. Board service provides an excellent opportunity to get an insider’s view of how the practice of law is regulated in Washington state.

Below is a list of boards seeking public members with links to detailed position descriptions. To apply, you must first create an account in myWSBA. Once you are logged in, look for the "Apply for a committee" link under My Profile.

After the application deadline, applications will be reviewed by individual nomination teams for each position, then by the WSBA Board of Governors Nominations Committee. Some positions are appointed by the Board of Governors, and some by the Supreme Court. Because of the lengthy review and appointment process, applicants may not learn if they have been appointed until mid to late summer. Most positions begin Oct. 1, 2019. Applicants are welcome to check on their status at any time by emailing barleaders@wsba.org.

The WSBA values diversity and inclusion, and encourages people of color, women, LGBT people, people with disabilities, and members of other historically under-represented groups to apply for these positions. If you need assistance completing the application, contact WSBA Bar Services Manager Pam Inglesby at pami@wsba.org or 206-727-8226.
