Running for Election – to the YLD Executive Committee
There’s two weeks left until Election Day – but it’s not too late for young lawyers to run for election. The Philadelphia Bar Association elections take place on December 8, 2008. Every year, seven new young lawyers are elected to three year terms to the Young Lawyers Division Executive Committee. Typically, there are about ten or so candidates for the EC, so the odds of election are in a candidate’s favor.
For those wondering about time commitments, fear not. There’s monthly meetings and some tim spent in helping organize our events, but it’s not too consuming. The benefits of involvement far outweigh the burden. For more information in running, check out the Bar Association webpage. Nomination materials are due October 29, 2008. Feel free to ask current EC members if you have any questions.
