President-Elect Buniva Seeks Applicants to Committees

Brian L. Buniva, president-elect of the VSB, seeks active and in-good-standing Virginia lawyers willing to serve on special and standing committees in 2020. 

Appointments will generally be for a three-year term, running from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2023, with the possibility of another three-year term to follow. To encourage participation — and recognizing the time commitment — lawyers are generally limited to serving on only one committee. Lawyer vacancies on standing committees are limited due to requirements for a specific number of Executive Committee and Bar Council members to serve on each committee.

Standing Committees:

  • Access to Legal Services
  • Budget & Finance
  • Lawyer Discipline*
  • Legal Ethics
  • Professionalism

* Please note: it is preferred that members of the Committee on Lawyer Discipline have experience on a local disciplinary district committee, for which applicants are also currently being sought.

Special Committees:

  • Bench-Bar Relations
  • Better Annual Meeting
  • Lawyer Insurance
  • Lawyer Referral
  • Resolution of Fee Disputes
  • Technology and the Future Practice of Law

If you would like to be considered for appointment to any of the VSB committees listed, please complete the committee preference form and return it with a brief résumé by February 14, 2020

Either email the form and résumé to Asha B. Holloman at committees@vsb.org or mail them to her at: Virginia State Bar, 1111 East Main Street, Suite 700, Richmond, VA 23219-0026.
