Enrich Your Career: Lead a Section
Why Serve on a D.C. Bar Section Steering Committee?
- Lead a section into the future.
- Collaborate with colleagues.
- Choose and develop programming in your practice area.
Steering committee members are responsible for coordinating programs, projects, publications, and community outreach activities. Steering committees also may develop public statements and submit comments on legislation, court rules, and regulatory reform related to the section's practice area.
The nominating committees for each of the D.C. Bar sections will choose candidates for positions on their respective steering committees in elections that will be held in the spring of 2015. Those elected will serve three-year terms, beginning July 1, 2015.
Interested section members can complete the candidate interest form below and submit it to the Section Office at any time. Please make sure to attach a current résumé. This information will be shared with the particular section's nominating committee, which will choose its candidates by early February 2015.
Prospective Candidate Briefing
If you are interested in serving on a steering committee and would like to learn more, there will be a briefing for prospective candidates at the D.C. Bar Conference Center (1101 K Street NW, first floor) in mid-January 2015. It will be a brown bag lunch with snack foods and beverages provided.
Please note: A suggested nomination does not automatically confer a place on the ballot. If you are not selected by the nominating committee for the ballot, you may still nominate yourself by petition with the signatures of not less than ten Section members. Petition forms may be requested through the Sections Office on or after Monday, March 1, 2015.
