Get Involved with ACBA Committees

The Alameda County Bar Association has established several standing committees that give members an opportunity to contribute to the community, influence the way law is practiced in our community and advise the ACBA Board of Directors to help manage the Bar and establish policy.

The ACBA is currently recruiting members for all of the Committees, except Community Projects Committee and the East Bay Diversity Bar Coalition. Participating in ACBA Committees is a great way to network with peers and enhance the practice of law and the administration of justice. If you are interested in serving on one of the Committees, please contact the Committee's staff liaison (listed on the individual Committee page) by September 30. In December, the ACBA President-Elect will make appointments to each committees for following year.
