Share SALT News

The Nominations Committee is currently soliciting nominations for current SALT members to run for one of several upcoming openings on the Board of Governors.  Service on the Board of Governors gives members a close and active opportunity to shape and enforce the policy of SALT designed to fulfill SALT’s basic mission – of making the legal profession more inclusive and reflective of the great diversity of this nation; enhancing social justice training and quality legal education with cutting edge teaching methodologies; and advancing the use of the law to serve under-served persons and communities.

There are two ways for SALT members to contribute to the nominations process:  (1) suggest names of SALT members to the Nominations Committee for consideration in developing its slate of nominees, or (2) nominate yourself. Only current SALT members qualify for nomination. You can click here to join or renew. To check the status of your membership, email or call (702) 983-9845.
