Department of Membership
The health and vitality of the organized bar is measured by the satisfaction of its membership. The Department of Membership Services is responsible for the recruitment and retention of members in the Colorado Bar Association.
To fulfill the function of recruitment and retention of members in the CBA, the department has identified several groups of attorneys and non-attorneys to target for membership. These include law students, newly-admitted attorneys, public counsel, corporate counsel, non-members, non-renewing members, minorities, and of course, current members. Several programs have been developed to work with these groups. Information on some of these programs can be found on the following pages.
In conjunction with the recruitment and retention functions, the department is also responsible for maintaining all membership records and statistics. This membership information is available to local bar associations, CLE providers, membership services providers and outside vendors upon request (see attached membership questionnaire form).
Annual departmental projects include the Swearing-In Ceremony, participation in local law school orientations, and the coordination of the annual dues billing process.
