WCBA Sections & Committees

We maintain more than 50 Sections and Committees encompassing virtually every area of legal practice and issues relevant to our attorney membership. This is where the work and professional growth of the Bar is accomplished, and membership provides many avenues for networking with other attorneys in specific practice areas as well as for contributing to the direction and the goals of the Bar Association and the profession as a whole.

Members may join at any time. Membership in all Committees is free, and there is a minimal dues fee for membership in the various Sections, ranging from $5 to $20.

To learn more about the duties of Section & Committee Chairs, click here.  WCBA Members who would like to join a Section or Committee may print and fax or email back this form or log into their account to join online.
