The First District Committee is comprised of Judicial Circuits 1, 3, 5, 7 and 8.  The 7th Judicial Circuit has been represented on the First District Committee by Polly Chong and Brian Lytle who have now both served two terms and will therefore rotate off of the Committee.  As Bar Council Representative for the 7th Judicial Circuit, it is my responsibility to nominate replacements for the First District Committee to fill the positions being vacated by Polly and Brian.  Nominees to fill these two positions must be selected by April 5, 2019, so time is of the essence, as criminal background checks must be processed with the Virginia State Police.  

Although the Virginia State Bar has sent out notices and published them in such places as Virginia Lawyers’ Weekly, if anyone is interested in being considered for appointment to the First District Committee, I encourage you to forward your resume and letters of recommendation to Ben Mason at bmason@masonwalker.com as soon as possible.  I will also be glad to try to answer any questions you may have.  

Again, I thank you for your willingness to serve the Virginia State Bar in this way and I look forward to hearing from those interested in being considered for this position.
