Like most nonprofit organizations, we rely heavily on volunteers to achieve our mission. One of the most important aspects of CCBE membership is the opportunity to get involved and make a difference. Below is a list of active committees that are working on behalf of its members. The only way for CCBE to know what issues you feel passionate about and how you think you can best contribute to the organization is to complete an Interest Form
and submit it to CCBE.
