Apply Now for HCBF Board Positions

Each year, new members can be appointed to the Foundation's Board to serve three-year terms. Board members oversee policies, fundraising, and the annual grant review process. Board members are limited to serving two consecutive three-year terms.

To be eligible to serve on the HCBF Board of Directors, individuals must be members in good standing of the Hennepin County Bar Association. The position of treasurer of the HCBF, while a one-year term that is not technically “tracked” in the bylaws, tends to be held by an individual who is interested in moving up to the leadership positions of secretary, president-elect, and president.

Applications for this year's openings are due by May 16, 2014.
