Leadership Development & Nominations Committee

Leadership Development & Nominations Committee

The King County Bar Association’s Leadership Development & Nominations Committee consists of up to nine members appointed by the KCBA President who identify and recruit KCBA members to serve on the KCBA Board of Trustees. Committee deliberations are confidential. A slate of candidates for open positions is submitted to the current board each February, which once approved is announced to the membership in the March Bar Bulletin. Members have the option to file petitions of candidacy to run against the slated candidates. If no petitions are received, the slate is deemed elected in April for terms that begin July 1.

To learn more about this committee or serving in a board position with KCBA, please contact KCBA Executive Director Dua Abudiab by email at duaa@kcba.org for details.
