Membership Committee of the New York State Bar Association Senior Lawyers
Section may be the most important committee in the section. Obviously without a strong membership, the
Section would not be able to function properly.
At present we have a strong membership consisting of more than 2,300 attorneys. There is still a great deal of room for
growth. Senior lawyers, those over 55
years of age, who are members of the NYSBA make up 25% of the Association’s
membership. Our job as the Membership
Committee is to increase membership as much as possible.
that end, we have granted one year’s free membership to any NYSBA member upon
reaching their 55th birthday. This has been an excellent way of bringing in
need to increase the number of attorneys on the Membership Committee. Ideally we would like to have one member from
each judicial district so that membership can be promoted throughout the
State. Outreach to non-members
remains our greatest challenge.
