COMMITTEES

TLA committees are efficient, purposeful bodies that contribute real value to this organization and the profession. Throughout our long history, committee members have shaped our decisions, our direction, and in so doing, they have left a legacy upon which to build.

Call for Nominations for the TLA Board of Directors and TLA Committees

Are you interested in becoming more involved with the TLA?  We are looking for energetic and engaged TLA members to join the TLA Board of Directors or one of the Board Committees, which include:

  • Advocacy

  • Awards and Events

  • Criminal

  • Education

  • Family

  • Innovation

  • Membership

  • Sponsorship

  • TLA Journal

  • Young Lawyers

  • Criminal

The TLA Board typically meets for an hour and a half in the evening nine times per year. Directors are expected to attend all Board Meetings, participate on at least one of the committees and represent the TLA at social events, which include the Awards Gala in March, the Young Lawyers Soiree in April, and a summer and fall pub.

Committee members are asked to actively participate by attending meetings, and in the case of the Education Committee, help fulfill the TLA mandate to provide a variety of bespoke education programs to our membership.

If you have been practicing for three years or more and would like to be considered for a position on the Board or a Committee, please provide the Executive Director, Joan Rataic-Lang (jrataiclang@tlaonline.ca) with a letter stating the position you are interested in and your qualifications. Please use “TLA Application” in the subject line of your email. 

The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2021.
