There are two types of membership offered by WSAMA. Membership is yearly and runs from January through December. Please read the descriptions below
to determine the membership class that applies. If you are currently a member you can use the membership directory to find and update your information
including the renewal of your membership.
General membership is open only to city or town attorneys or assistant city or town attorneys, serving either by election or appointment, or by contract.
(WSAMA bylaws, Article II, Section 7). General membership entitles a member to receive all WSAMA entitles a member to receive all WSAMA mailings and to be
eligible for WSAMA elective offices. Members are also entitled to vote at elections for WSAMA offices and on issues which come before the WSAMA general membership.
- $30 (first city or town attorney in each office)
- $10 (each additional city or town attorney in the office)
Under WSAMA's bylaws, any attorney admitted to practice in the state of Washington, and state and municipal officials and employees, may become associate members.
Associate membership entitles a person to receive WSAMA mailings, including notices of meetings and workshops.
You may pay these reduced dues if you meet two qualifications: 1) you do not charge clients for services on a regular or on-going basis; and 2) it would be a hardship
for you to pay the full dues for Associate Members. The WSAMA Board reserves the right to decide that you do not meet these qualifications.
