Make A Difference: Apply for appointment to a State Bar Committee.
Leadership of the state bar not only involves the Board of Governors but also the lawyers throughout the state who make significant contributions to the profession by volunteering to serve on one of the state bar’s committees.
Participation in a bar committee not only provides valuable service to the bar, but it is personally rewarding. These activities help your practice. You’ll find more mentors, enhance your reputation and gain a frame of reference outside of your practice.
The State Bar of Nevada’s Board of Governors appoints members to committees five times a year, during board meetings. You can find a current schedule of meetings on our Board of Governors page.
Each year, the Board of Governors appoints new members to state bar committees. The Board strives to make appointments that will achieve diversity and broad representation of the legal community. The participation of all state bar members is encouraged by the board. From time to time, the board may appoint representatives of other professions and members of the public to select committees.
In no case shall the Board of Governors appoint a person who is currently on disciplinary probation.
Term of Appointment and Time Commitment
Members are appointed to varying terms. On occasion, the board may appoint a member to fill an unexpired vacancy (i.e., the appointee serves only the remaining portion of the term of the member who resigned).
Committee members receive no compensation for services. Committee members may be reimbursed for approved travel expenses, in accordance with the state bar’s travel policy and the committee’s approved budget.
Application Review and Board Appointment
Committees review the appointment applications and forward their recommendations to the Board of Governors. The ultimate authority to make the appointments rests with the board. The State Bar of Nevada’s Board of Governors appoints members to committees five times a year, during board meetings. You can find a current schedule of meetings on our Board of Governors page.
