YLD Picks Slate for 2013/2014 Board Positions
After a thorough application and interview process in which a number of great candidates came forward, the King County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Nominations Committee has put forth a slate of candidates for upcoming vacancies on the YLD Board of Trustees.
The YLD bylaws prescribe that the Nominations Committee shall nominate at least one candidate for each member and lay member vacancy to be filled. Thus, the Committee has nominated one candidate for each open position as follows:
- Skylee Robinson, currently serving as YLD vice chair, for a one-year term as chair;
- Brent Bohan, Katie Comstock, Nathan Nanfelt and Peter Talevich for three-year member terms; and
- Nick Thorsvig, of Principal Financial, for a two-year, lay member term.
Candidate statements for these individuals appear on page 16.
YLD members and lay members who wish to challenge the slate may run against the above-named candidates for member and lay member trustee positions by submitting a petition signed by at least five members of the YLD in good standing (25 signatures required if challenging the chair position) and filing that petition with the office of the King County Bar Association by 3 p.m. Friday, May 10.
For more information about the petition process, please contact KCBA Member Services Manager Christine Dreps at email@example.com or by phone at 206-267-7003.
