The Committee on Membership acts as the Section’s cheerleader. The Committee works closely with NYSBA’s staff to track membership developments and solicits Section volunteers for the many recruitment opportunities arranged by NYSBA at law schools. Two members of the Committee are members of NYSBA’s Membership Committee and share with the Section’s Executive Committee ideas learned from other Sections. The Committee also works closely with the District Representatives to encourage them to (i) welcome new members and help get them involved in Section activities and committees, (ii) conduct various social and community service projects with local and specialty bar associations and (iii) publicize the Section and what it has to offer at continuing education programs run by the Section and local and specialty bar associations. The Committee’s overall mission is to lead the Section’s efforts to attract and retain members and to involve members in Section activities.
Committee membership is open to members of the Real Property Law Section.
