HCBF Notice of Election

The Hennepin County Bar Foundation (HCBF) is seeking applications for open seats on its Board of Directors and for the position of treasurer.  
The mission of the HCBF is to “promote equal access to justice for the people of Hennepin County.” The HCBF fulfills this mission through supporting partner organizations and awarding grants to organizations that provide legal services to individuals of limited resources, educate the public about the legal system, and contribute to the improvement of the legal system and administration of justice.  
The HCBF Nominating Committee looks for board members from the local legal community who are enthusiastic about increasing access to justice initiatives through the foundation’s fundraising, grantmaking, and community engagement.


To be eligible to serve on the HCBF Board of Directors, individuals must be members in good standing of the Hennepin County Bar Association. Members of the HCBF board are elected to three-year terms and are eligible to serve two consecutive terms.  
The position of treasurer of the HCBF tends to be held by an individual who is interested in moving up to the leadership positions of secretary, vice president, and president.  
For an application and position description, please visit hcba.org. Applications are due by Friday, April 23, 2021. Applicant interviews will be scheduled in May.   
An online application process is available HERE.
