The New York State Bar Association
Committee on Membership was originally established in 1952. The
Committee is comprised of members who maintain a strategic focus on
keeping NYSBA membership diverse, inclusive, relevant and valuable for
all members of the Association.
The stated purpose of the Committee on Membership shall be the study
of membership development and retention for the Association and the
development of recommendations to increase membership and enhance
retention of attorneys and law students.
The Challenge is for
each Section of the New York State Bar Association to develop and
execute initiatives to increase the diversity of its membership,
leadership and programs, and to evaluate the results.
