    • Time commitment involved in volunteer contributions in one or more organizations
    • Length of service

    • Whether the commitment involved managing people, events or funds
    • The overall effort expended in the pursuit of the organization's goals
    • The direct benefit to the community resulting from the nominee's involvement. Supporting documentation such as letters may be included.
  • A current curriculum vitae of the nominee (recommended)

All nominations require the signatures of two branch members in good standing and one non-lawyer member of the nominee’s community, preferably from an organization which has benefitted from participation by the nominee.
