Message From Your Chair Klaralee Charlton

The DBA YLD Executive Council is accepting applications for new board members from now until April 7, 2017. While the Council is an excellent opportunity to become more involved in the Bar, the selection process is competitive and the time commitment is significant. If you are not selected for a position on the Council or you simply cannot carve out the time necessary to serve on the Council, there are many other committees that need volunteers.

Check out all the DBA committees. Most of the committees do not require you to apply and be accepted in order to participate in a significant way. In fact, most are actively seeking attorneys to help plan and execute events and take on leadership positions.

For example, the Seniors Committee is eager to add a young lawyer. This committee plans four events a year and would be an excellent opportunity for a YLD member to become involved and network with seasoned practitioners. Contact Heather Folker for more info. Additionally, the Bench Bar Committee would welcome some fresh ideas from a YLD member. This committee plans events with our judicial officers throughout the year and offers the opportunity to work one on one with judges in the Denver area. Contact Juliann Tricarico for more info.

Some of our most active leaders started their Bar engagement as members of these committees. Don’t wait in silence hoping you’ll be asked to get involved. Contact me or the staff liaison listed next to each committee on the Bar’s website. We can introduce you to the chairperson of any committee and get you involved in a meaningful way.
