Interested in running for a position on Section Leadership or the New Lawyers Division’s Executive Committee?  Serving in a leadership position is one of a variety of pathways the SDCBA offers to enhance member involvement.

As a Section Leader or New Lawyers Division Executive Committee member, you will play an integral role in shaping the programs and activities the SDCBA provides to our members.  The vibrancy and success of our law practice sections and activities for new lawyers is due to the efforts of attorney members serving in this capacity.

Inclusion is a core value of SDCBA and providing leadership opportunities for lawyers from diverse backgrounds is an important way we demonstrate our commitment to this value.   Attorney members from diverse backgrounds and experiences are encouraged to submit a nomination for a position in section leadership.

We encourage interested candidates to communicate with current members serving in leadership roles and other candidates about their experience.
