November 06, 2020

The D.C. Bar is accepting nominations from members wishing to be candidates in the 2021 D.C. Bar elections. The deadline for receipt of nominations is February 12.

The D.C. Bar Nominations Committee is charged with nominating individuals for the positions of D.C. Bar president-elect, secretary, and treasurer; five members of the D.C. Bar’s Board of Governors; and three delegates to the American Bar Association (ABA) House of Delegates, including one who either will be under the age of 36 at the beginning of his or her term or has been admitted to practice in his or her first bar within the past five years at the start of the term. The term begins at the adjournment of the ABA’s Annual Meeting in August 2021. All candidates must be active members of the D.C. Bar, and all candidates for ABA House of Delegates positions must also be ABA members. 

Individuals interested in being considered for any of these positions should submit their résumés and a cover letter stating the position for which they would like to be considered and a description of relevant work or volunteer experience. Leadership experience with D.C. Bar committees, voluntary bar associations, or the Bar’s Communities is highly desirable. Nominations materials may be e-mailed to Crystal White, Board and Committee Liaison, at [email protected].
