Additional Info download form (pdf)

To: Members of the Bar
From: Jon D. Huddleston, President-elect

As you know, much of the work of the Virginia State Bar is done through its committees, and we need members willing to serve during the upcoming bar year. The work of the committees is time-consuming and in most cases requires committee members to set aside substantial time to fulfill the requirements of the job. To encourage participation — and recognizing the time constraints — members are generally limited to serving on only one committee. The number of available positions is quite limited, but I will attempt to accommodate as many people as possible.

Appointments will generally be for a three-year term, running from July 1, 2009, to June 30, 2012.

The committees are as follows:

Standing Committees:*

  • Budget & Finance
  • Lawyer Discipline
  • Legal Ethics
  • Professionalism
  • Unauthorized Practice of Law

Special Committees:

  • Access to Legal Services
  • Bench-Bar Relations
  • Information Technology
  • Lawyer Malpractice Insurance
  • Lawyer Referral
  • Midyear Legal Seminar
  • Personal Insurance for Members
  • Publications and Public Information
  • Resolution of Fee Disputes
  • Technology and the Practice of Law

*Lawyer member vacancies on Standing Committees are somewhat limited due to requirements to have a specific number of Executive Committee and Council members on each committee.

If you would like to be considered for appointment to any of the VSB committees listed, please download and complete the form above and return it to the Virginia State Bar office or e-mail it to by March 9.
