Membership Committee



Has OCBA Membership been meaningful to you? Would you like to see others benefit in the same way? Do you have recommendations for ways to maximize the value of OCBA membership? If you would like to help to promote collegiality and participation among your peers, this is the committee for you!

The Membership Committee has the important task of working to ensure OCBA membership is valuable, meaningful and inclusive for all. This committee reviews membership-related programs and services for improvements and recommends new services to benefit current OCBA members and encourage new membership. The Membership Committee reaches out to new and prospective members to help them feel welcomed and encourages them to become actively involved. With your help, we can promote and improve OCBA services for all.


The mission of the Membership Committee is to recruit new members, retain existing members, encourage diversity in the OCBA, and raise awareness about the importance of diversity in the legal profession.

Committee members meet on a regular basis for both business and to promote collegiality and have an enjoyable time. Join us on the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at a variety of fun venues.
