Membership Committee

The 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.

To 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 new members. 

We 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.
