Bar News | Get Involved and Give Back

OBA MEMBERS JOIN committees to get more involved in the association, network with colleagues and work together for the betterment of our profession and our communities. Now is your opportunity to join other volunteer lawyers in making our association the best of its kind – by signing up to serve on an OBA committee in 2023.

More than 20 active committees offer you the chance to serve in a way that is meaningful for you. Committee service takes a small investment of time but pays major dividends in terms of the friendships you will make and the satisfaction in the work you will do. Serving on an OBA committee is your chance to develop your leadership skills while tackling projects for which you may already have a passion – whether that’s improving access to justice for all Oklahomans, fostering public understanding of the law or helping your fellow lawyers who may be facing challenges with addiction or substance abuse. You can also benefit from working with new information and technology that will help you better serve your clients.

There are many committees to consider, and I invite you to review the full list below. Choose your top three committee choices and fill out the online form at https://bit.ly/3SjMzcE.

We will make appointments for 2023 soon! I am looking forward to hearing from you. The OBA will be better for your service!

Thank you!
