KBA Committees and Sections
The KBA Lawyer Referral & Information Service provides a valuable public service to community while also serving as a referral source for members. The LRIS Committee implemented a marketing plan to raise the visibility of the LRIS in our community. Television advertising was continued which included brief 10-second spots to raise the visibility of LRIS and the KBA. Public service announcements about the LRIS were aired on radio station WUOT. The LRIS Committee continued discounted panel membership fee for newly licensed KBA members, and offered discounted rates to join LRIS in January, midway through the fiscal year. LRIS staff attended two veteran-oriented programs in 2012, assisted by LRIS members. Information about LRIS and Legal Resource Guides were distributed to attendees.
