Call for nominations: CBA National Women Lawyers Forum

APPLY ONLINE | APRIL 30 – MAY 31, 2018

The CBA National Women Lawyers Forum is seeking nominations for a Secretary and up to ten Members-at-Large, for the term September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019.


The Secretary takes and circulates the minutes of monthly conference calls and participates in conference calls with other executive members to plan activities.

The Secretary sequentially occupies each office through to Past Chair, which involves a five-year commitment.

British Columbia is well represented. Nominations from other parts of Canada are encouraged.


Member-at-Large positions are open to Forum members who wish to actively participate in the work of the Forum. Members-at-Large attend meetings and conference calls as they are able, and are assigned specific tasks such as: taking Minutes if the Secretary is not available; assisting with producing newsletters or other communication; the bi-annual Leadership Conference; researching legislative and law reform matters; drafting CBA resolutions; and other tasks as they arise. There are many opportunities to assist.

Young lawyers and students with a particular interest or relevant experience are encouraged to apply.

Roles and expectations for each position.


Nominations must be received by May 31, 2018. When filling positions, the Forum takes various factors into account, including language, geographic representation and diversity. We consider members who are familiar with and active in Forum activities, but also seek new participants.
