The King County Bar Association (KCBA) was founded in 1886 by Seattle-area attorneys to discipline and reprimand colleagues who were participating in lawless, racist vigilantism to expel Chinese workers from Seattle.
Over the past 135 years, the KCBA’s goal and the aspiration has always been to be more than a professional society or a social club. Instead, the KCBA has sought to harness its voice and its authority to champion justice, influence public policy, promote an excellent judiciary, and educate the public as well as legal professionals.
The KCBA is an organization with more than 5,000 attorney members; 1,100 pro bono volunteers; and 45 staff members who support the organization’s pro bono legal activities and its member services. The KCBA’s annual budget is approximately $4.2 million.
We are looking for a visionary leader who can rise to the unprecedented challenges that the KCBA, the law and justice system, and society are facing, and who has the skill to and is passionate about leveraging those challenges into opportunities for transformational growth and change.
