The D.C. Bar is accepting nominations from members wishing to be candidates in its 2020 elections. The deadline for receipt of nominations is February 10. Voting begins in May.

The D.C. Bar Nominations Committee is charged with nominating individuals for the positions of D.C. Bar president-elect, secretary, and treasurer, as well as for five vacancies in the Bar’s Board of Governors and three vacancies in the American Bar Association (ABA) House of Delegates. All candidates must be active members of the D.C. Bar, and all candidates for the ABA House of Delegates positions must also be ABA members.

Individuals interested in being considered for any of these positions should submit their résumé and 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.
