New WSBA President-elect and
Board Members Elected
Congratulations to William Hyslop of Spokane, who was elected as WSBA’s 2014–15

Board of Governors at its June
6 meeting. Mr.
Hyslop, a former
member, is a
principal in Lukins
& Annis’s Litigation Department,
and was the U.S.
Attorney for the
from 1991 to
1993. His leadership experience
includes serving as President
of the Spokane
County Bar Association, the Washington
State University Alumni Association, and
the Federal Bar Association of the Eastern
District of Washington.
The Board also elected Mario Cava
of Everett as an at-large governor. Mr.
Cava, Senior Litigation Auditor at Liberty
Mutual Insurance Group, joins four
other new Board members: Jill Karmy,
of Longview, a partner at Parham, Hall
& Karmy (District 3); Keith Black, of Gig
Harbor, former Pierce County Chief Civil

Ms. Jarmon was elected by the Board of

initially declared for the open District 8
seat. The other three district positions
were elected this spring by WSBA
members from those districts.
These governors will serve three-year
terms starting in September 2014. Read
more about them, along with our new
president and president-elect, in the October issue of NWLawyer.

MCLE Notifications Mailed to
Members in the 2012–14 Reporting
The WSBA recently mailed notifications to
WSBA-CLE Annual Online Summer
active lawyers, house counsel, and admin-
istrative law judges due to complete MCLE
credits by Dec. 31 of this year and to certify
credits no later than Feb. 2, 2015. Each no-
tification includes a report of the number
of credits that still need to be earned by
December 31 to complete the credit re-
quirement. Instructions are also given for
accessing your online MCLE roster. You are
encouraged to review the roster for incor-
rectly reported credits, missing credits, as
well as duplicate listings of courses. Cor-
recting and updating records will allow you
to determine the actual number of cred-
its that still need to be earned before the
end of the year in order to avoid a late fee.
Keeping online records updated will en-
sure that a correct MCLE certification form
is produced in September for the license
packet and posted for online certification
