House of Delegates Letters of Interest Due February 24, 2023

Involvement in the activities of our Bar Association is a richly rewarding experience. One way to become familiar with Bar Association activities is by serving as a member of the House of Delegates. For those interested in becoming a member of the Bar’s Executive Committee and an eventual Bar officer, House of Delegates’ membership is a necessary first step. To learn more about Rhode Island Bar Association governance, please go to the Bar’s website.
The Nominating Committee will meet soon to prepare a slate of officers and members of the 2023-2024 Rhode Island Bar Association House of Delegates. The term of office is July 1, 2023- June 30, 2024. If you have not already done so, to be considered for appointment to the House of Delegates, please send a letter of interest no later than February 24, 2023.
PLEASE NOTE: Current members of the Bar’s House of Delegates who wish to be considered for reappointment must also send a letter of interest by this date.
Letters of interest should include the member’s length of service to the Rhode Island Bar Association (i.e., participation in Committees and positions held in those Committees; community service to the Bar Association and outside the Bar Association, and positions held outside the Bar Association). Testimonials and letters of recommendation are neither required nor encouraged. Direct and indirect informal contact by candidates or those wishing to address candidates’ qualifications to members of the Nominating Committee is prohibited. Please send letters of interest to:
