DC Bar Seeks Steering Committee Members

The D.C. Bar sections would like to invite you to make recommendations to our nominating committees for the vacancies on steering committees in 2017-18.
Steering committee members are responsible for coordinating programs, projects, publications, and community outreach activities.  Steering committees also may develop public statements and submit comments on legislation, court rules and regulatory reform in a section’s area of practice.  A listing of the 20 sections can be found at http://www.dcbar.org/sections/sections-pages.cfm.  If you click on any individual section’s name, you will find more information about that particular section’s committees, activities and upcoming events. 
If you know of any members of the D.C. Bar who may be interested in becoming candidates, please encourage them to complete a Candidate Interest Form which can be submitted here:  
The nominating committees will submit their lists of nominees no later than April 17, 2017 and candidates will have until May 11, 2017 to submit biographical statements of no more than 675 characters. Balloting will begin on June 1, 2017 and close on June 22, 2017. Elected candidates take office on July 1, 2017.
Please feel free to include an announcement in any other member communications.  If you or your members have any questions about responsibilities of steering committee members or the sections in general, please do not hesitate to contact me, or to direct your members’ inquiries to sections@dcbar.org
