The Clark County Bar Association is a non–profit corporation incorporated in the state of Washington in 1978, although it operated as an unincorprated association for many years prior to incorporation. It is governed by a nine person board of trustees who serve staggared, three year terms. Officers are elected from the board annually by the Association’s members. The Association has several standing committees and sections which are operated by interested members under the direction of the board.
The mission of the CCBA is to maintain the dignity and honor of the legal profession, to promote the administration of justice, to cultivate a feeling of goodwill among its members, and to recommend, advocate and work for the enactment of laws which promote justice.
There are three categories of membership in the CCBA. All licensed attorneys actively enaged in the practice of law are eligible for regular membership. Attorneys no longer engaged in the active practice of law are eligible for Emeritus membership. Non–attorneys may join the CCBA as Associate members.
