Dear State Bar member,
This spring I have the opportunity to appoint members to State Bar standing and special committees.
Committee service provides you the opportunity to influence important issues facing the profession and the legal system, and it’s a great way to meet other lawyers who want to make a difference. You’ll play a role in improving the bar and the legal system, make important contributions that you’ll look back on with satisfaction, and create meaningful relationships.
State Bar President-elect Robert Gagan invites you to volunteer for a State Bar committee
- Continuing Legal Education
- Legal Assistance
- Legislative Oversight
- Professional Ethics
- Bench and Bar
- Diversity Outreach
- Insurance and Member Benefits
- Law Office Management Assistance Program (LOMAP) Advisory
- Lawyer Referral and Information Service
- Leadership Development
- Local Bar Relations
- Public Education.
- Wisconsin Lawyers Assistance Program
- Wisconsin Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection
For more information, visit the Committees page on WisBar. Submit an Interest Form by April 15 to be considered for a 2014 appointment.
Committees conduct much of the work of the State Bar and often influence policy on critical issues. Committees also have significant input into how the bar operates. Appointments to standing committees are for three years; appointments to special committees are for one year. All committee appointments will begin on July 1.
Our organization needs new volunteers to get involved. New volunteers provide new direction and new ideas to an organization. Getting involved is the best way to create a State Bar organization that you can support and be proud of. Whether you are a new lawyer, unsure of how or whether to get involved, or a veteran who for whatever reasons has stayed on the sidelines, perhaps now is the time to begin.
Please take a moment to visit the Committees page, and submit an Interest Form to let me know which committees and issues facing Wisconsin lawyers you would like to contribute to. Together we can make a difference.
Robert R. Gagan, President-elect
