The business of The Virginia Bar Association is managed by its Board of Governors. It must consist of:

  • Four officers and the YLD Chair, who make up the Executive Committee
  • The chair of the LPMD and the chair-elect of the YLD
  • One representative from each of the six regions of the state
  • Six at-large members

Interested in serving a three-year board term? Members can self-nominate. Email the executive director.

Additionally, the board may appoint three representatives for one-year terms to represent the judiciary, the state’s law schools and lawyer-legislators. Email the executive director if interested.
