Most of our events, trainings, volunteering, and other programs are organized by our all-volunteer board. Our working board plans and participates in a range of educational and training programs, social and fundraising events, and advocacy activities. Serving on our board is both professionally and personally rewarding, and we welcome applications from public-interest minded advocates from nonprofit organizations, the government, law firms, and law schools.
Board members serve for year-long terms, beginning in September of each year. We hold five board meetings each year (typically at lunchtime during the week), and board members must also join and participate actively in at least two of our committees—these include Communications, Issues, Membership, Special Events & Fundraising, and Pro Bono & Public Interest. In addition, Board members are asked to contribute financially to the organization and attend our events when possible.
Our upcoming Board meetings are:
Wednesday, April 18 at noon
Wednesday, May 23 at noon.
Washington Council of Lawyers members are welcome to attend. For more information and to RSVP, contact Executive Director Nancy Lopez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll be accepting applications this spring for our 2018–2019 board; stay tuned for details.
