    Good afternoon

    With the end of the year approaching, it is time for the Legal Community elections. 

    There are several roles that are open this year.  This is an excellent opportunity to help set the future course of the community and expand your professional skills.  Volunteering for one of these positions is an excellent professional and leadership development opportunity.

     Please contact Jill Strand ( by November 18, 2023, if you are interested in any of these roles or wish to recommend somebody.  

    Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect (Elected Position)

    Secretary (Elected Position)
