QLaw 2018 Board Opportunities

We are seeking members to serve two-year terms on our QLaw Association Board from May 2018 to April 2020. Board service generally involves a commitment of 3-5 hours each month. Board members are expected to:

  • Attend and actively participate in the monthly board meetings, which are held the first Wednesday evening of each month at a downtown Seattle location.  Video-conferencing options are available for non-King County based board members.
  • Attend and actively participate in the all-day Saturday board retreat, which is held in mid-May. For non-King County based board members, funding is available for travel.
  • Chair or co-chair one Committee (Banquet, Communications, Membership, Law Student Outreach/Mentorship, Social/Services, Issues Advocacy or Judicial Evaluations).
  • Actively participate in either the Banquet Committee or Judicial Evaluations Committee.
It is preferred that those interested in serving on the QLaw Association Board have some combination of the following:
  • An understanding and appreciation of QLaw’s mission and goals (www.qlaw.org/AboutUs).

  • Prior service on a QLaw Committee and/or attendance at prior QLaw events (with consideration given to the constraints of non-King County based members).

  • An understanding and appreciation of board service, time commitment, and dedication.

  • A willingness to ask tough questions, work collaboratively with others, respect all ideas, take reasonable risks, and make decisions on behalf of the membership.

There is no financial commitment in serving on the Board.

We welcome interest from those with varying levels of experience in the legal community (including non-lawyers) and from various backgrounds to add to the diversity of our board.
Please contact President-Elect Dan Shih at [email protected] or Vice President Thuy Nguyen at [email protected] before February 1, if you are interested in learning more about joining the Board or if you want to volunteer to serve on one of the Committees listed above.
