Time Commitment: Serving as a member of the CYLA Board of Directors is a time consuming obligation. Meetings require research and reading, and outreach efforts can occupy as many as ten (10) hours per month. The average full committee meeting may take six (6) to seven (7) hours on a Friday or Saturday. Subcommittee meetings occur on a more ad hoc basis, but can entail one or more conference calls per month. A member can expect to devote no less than one to two weeks of typical work-days per year.
Meetings per year: 6 times per year, with 3 in-person meetings (Northern California, Southern California and Annual Meeting) and 3 conference calls.
You can apply for a position on the CYLA Board of Directors through the State Bar's appointments process.
