MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

Dear Present, Past and Potential Members:
In an effort to better serve its membership, SFLRLA is changing its memberships fees due date. Beginning January 1, 2015, membership fees will coincide with the calendar year.  In other words, your membership will expire on December 31 each year. In order to ease the transition into the new membership structure, any membership fees received on November 1, 2014 or later will apply towards the remainder of 2014 and all of 2015.  Membership dues for existing members will be due January 31, 2015.

We encourage you to register as a member for the 2015 year. As an SFLRLA member you will be supporting one of the Bay Area’s most active minority bar associations and its efforts to promote diversity in the judiciary and the profession. Membership benefits include access to a network of lawyers that spans across the entire San Francisco Bay Area, member only mixers, and discounts to events, including the annual Noche de Gala and the Ceja Picnic.

You can join online through Acteva’s secure system or download the application as a Word document and mail it to our P.O. Box address:

San Francisco La Raza Lawyers Association
P.O. Box 192241

The Law Student Council was formed in the Fall of 2006 to increase student participation in the San Francisco La Raza Lawyers Association (SFLRLA), to provide Bay Area Latina/o law students the opportunity to express their perspectives, and to facilitate communication among the Latina/o Bar and Latina/o law student associations. Two Law Student Council representatives participate on the SFLRLA board. The Law Student Council shares the mission of the SFLRLA and is a testament to the Association’s recognition of the importance of developing young leaders. The council consists of law students who have demonstrated their commitment to community service and mentorship. The Law Student Council meets monthly and its members attend SFLRLA general meetings.
