Board of Commissioners

The Board of Commissioners is the elected governing body of the Bar. The Board consists of five commissioners, elected from Idaho’s seven judicial districts. Two commissioners are elected from the Fourth District, one represents the First and Second Districts, one the Third and Fifth Districts, and one the Sixth and Seventh Districts. Commissioners serve staggered three-year terms.

The Commissioners meet 8-10 times a year to oversee the various functions and programs of the Bar. Pursuant to Idaho Bar Commissioner Rule 900, member input and recommendations are generated through the fall Resolution Process. This process allows members of the bar to have the opportunity to recommend changes in rules of the court statutes, policies or rules of the bar, and to discuss issues of interest or concern. The Idaho State Bar cannot take a position on legislation unless the members have approved the issue during the Resolution Process.
