Rule would waive fees for reservists.

The Bar Board of Governors has received a rule change that would waive annual membership fees for Bar members who serve in the military reserves and are called up for more than 30 days of active service in a year.

Budget Committee Chair Mayanne Downs presented the rule at the board's December meeting and noted it will come back for final approval in February. The rule does not apply to Bar members who are regular duty members of the military. The rule requires those seeking the exemption to apply within 15 days of the date their annual fees are due, or within 15 days of activation. They must also inform the Bar within 30 days of leaving active duty.
