Why particpate in the 2019 NLADA Elections?

NLADA is our voice in the national arena on significant issues that directly impact the civil and defender legal services communities. The Board and Councils influence the direction of the Association as they craft policies and determine what products and services will best serve our members. It is critical that we, as NLADA members, take seriously our responsibility to provide guidance and leadership through the Board and Councils. The ability of the Association to effectively serve its communities depends on attracting strong, committed and diverse candidates to serve on these governing bodies.
