RPPT Section Seeks Applicants for Leadership Development Initiative Program
The WSBA Real Property, Probate & Trust Section Leadership Development Initiative Program has been developed to encourage the active involvement and participation of new and young lawyers in Section activities. The goal of the program is to give new and young lawyers an opportunity to become involved in the substantive work of RPPT, while developing into future leaders. Fellows participating in the program serve a two year term on the RPPT executive committee where they receive training and mentoring as well as have an opportunity to contribute to the Section’s important work and strategic planning for the future. Currently there are two open Real Property Fellow positions and one open Probate and Trust Fellow position.
Candidates must (1) have practiced in the real property or probate and trust area for at least one (1) year; (2) be younger than 36 years of age or have been admitted to WSBA fewer than five (5) years; and (3) demonstrate a willingness to become a leader of the Section in the future.
