Don't Forget! House of Delegates Letters of Interest Due February 23, 2024

Have you thought about becoming more involved in the Rhode Island Bar Association? One way to become familiar with Bar Association activities is by serving as a member of the House of Delegates (HOD.) The HOD is the primary governing and policy-making body of the Association. We urge you to consider joining this important piece of Bar governance. We feel it is essential to include new voices to help enhance the Bar’s vision and ensure a more inclusive experience for our members.
The time commitment is minimal as the HOD only meets about 4 times a year in January, April, June, and September (essentially once a quarter with the summer off) and as needed. In addition, participation in the HOD is often a pathway to a leadership position. Most importantly, the HOD votes on the Executive Committee for RIBA which determines our future president and other officers. 
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 2024-2025 Rhode Island Bar Association House of Delegates. The term of office is July 1, 2024- June 30, 2025. To be considered for appointment to the House of Delegates, please send a letter of interest to Kathleen M. Bridge, Executive Director by fax at (401) 421-2703, or email at no later than February 23, 2024.
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.
The Nominating Committee welcomes letters of interest from all qualified candidates, including those of diverse backgrounds and from underrepresented identity groups.
Involvement in the activities of our Bar Association is a richly rewarding experience. We urge you to submit a letter of interest today. Your voice will help ensure Bar governance reflects the varied interests of our Bar.
