IN THIS ISSUE, WE introduce you to the 2018-19 WSBA President Bill Pickett. He was elect- ed to the Board of Gover- nors in September 2015 and to the office of pres- ident-elect in September 2017. He became president
several months before his planned tenure after former President Brad Furlong
resigned on March 17, 2018.
NWLAWYER: You have made it
clear you are deeply committed
to three ideas in your new role as
WSBA President: trust, relationship,
and service. Can you explain more
specifically why these ideas are so
important to you?
PICKETT: Trust, relationship, and
service will be our touchstones for
2018-19. In all that we say and do, we
will be asking: Does this increase trust,
enhance relationships, and breathe life
into our mission of service leadership?
Honestly answering these questions at the beginning of any of our
projects, initiatives, or decision-mak-ing processes—whatever those may
be—will ultimately focus our energy
on action that changes our legal profession for the better. In turn we, your
Board of Governors and WSBA staff
and volunteers, will serve the membership like never before.
A word on TRUST.
Fundamentally, human beings work best when
we collaborate. Trust and relationship
