News from the Judicial Candidate Endorsement Committee

In November, the MRWBA Judicial Candidate Endorsement Committee will be participating in interviews for the opening on the Henrico County Circuit Court opening due to the upcoming retirement of Judge James S. Yoffy.  Pending action during a special session of the General Assembly, we may also participate in the process to appoint a judge to the Richmond General District Court, which is currently filled by a Judge Pro Tempore.  The committee will share findings and endorsements with MRWBA membership upon completion.

Sponsorships Available

MRWBA’s events are possible thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. This year, we are offering two sponsorship levels (Platinum and Gold). These sponsorships provide an opportunity to promote your brand to a demographic of well-educated, professional women with an average salary of $101,126 per year. Sponsors have the opportunity to sponsor one of our luncheons or another signature event, such as a membership social or mentorship function. MRWBA will reduce the sponsorship amount by 50% for sponsors of our virtual luncheons. Click here to secure your sponsorship today. 

We appreciate our sponsors’ continuing support during these challenging times.
