Appointment Vacancies

Seek Appointment to Missouri Bar Committees and Related Entities

The Missouri Bar Board of Governors routinely appoints members to serve on various bar-related boards and committees. Please find a listing of any such open vacancies below.

When such vacancies occur, the Appointments Committee (a subcommittee comprised of members of the Board of Governors), reviews nominees and makes recommendations to the board.
