The D.C. Bar is seeking candidates to fill vacancies on the Committee on Nominations, D.C. Judicial Nomination Commission (JNC), and D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure (JDT). The deadline to apply for these vacancies has been extended to October 23.
Committee on Nominations: The Bar is accepting candidate résumés for the seven–member Committee on Nominations through October 23. This body is appointed each year in accordance with the Bar’s bylaws and is responsible for nominating candidates for the Bar’s officer and Board of Governors positions for the next Bar election. Any active Bar member who is not a Board of Governors officer or member and who has not served on the Committee on Nominations during the past three years is eligible to apply.
JNC/JDT: The Board of Governors will need to fill vacancies for the D.C. Judicial Nomination Commission and the D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure. All terms are for six years. Applicants for these commissions have to be active members of the D.C. Bar and bona fide residents of the District of Columbia.
To apply for a board or committee opening, applicants must submit a résumé and a cover letter stating the committee or board on which they would like to serve, and a description of work or volunteer experiences providing relevant skills for the position(s) sought to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications that do not include the requisite cover letter with a description of relevant experience will not be considered. Leadership experience with other D.C. Bar committees, voluntary bar associations, or the Bar’s sections is highly desirable. Descriptions of the committees can be found online at www.dcbar.org/inside_the_bar/structure/
