Nominations Committee

Would you like to serve your Bars?

The Nominations Committee will meet again in August, and at that time we will produce a slate of candidates to run for the Board positions for both the Tenth Judicial District and the Wake County Bar Association. We will nominate 14 people to fill the seven vacant positions on the Board of Directors, two names for the President-Elect position, and names for vacant Bar Councilor, Secretary and Treasurer positions. The nominations committee would love to have people who have a little bit of passion for their Bars and would like to be a part of governance of these exceptional Bars.

Serving on the Board of Directors requires attendance at six meetings per year, plus being liaison for at least one committee. The meetings are usually at the Bar Center and last from 4:30 p.m. until approximately 6 p.m.

The President-Elect position is a three year time commitment. During the year as President-Elect, you would be responsible for attending as many committee meetings and Bar functions as possible. As President-Elect of the WCBA, you would select and introduce speakers for each of the monthly luncheons. As President, you would continue attendance at the meetings and functions and you would preside over the Board meetings and luncheons. As Past-president, your duties resemble those of the Board members, however, you are available to the President(s) and President(s)-elect for guidance and advice.

State Bar Councilors meet quarterly, and they have a fairly substantial amount of reading material for each of the meetings. They are also requested to serve on either the Ethics or Grievance Committees of the State Bar. The meetings are either three or four days in length.

If you have interest in serving your Bars in one of these capacities, please fill out the attached form and send it to your Nominations Committee!
