The Community Service Committee identifies and promotes opportunities for BCAALL members to donate or volunteer services to the law, library and/or greater community, with a particular focus on organizations serving minority needs.
The Committee selects a service project that benefits the host city of the AALL's Annual Meeting. A representative of the selected organization is invited to the annual dinner and presented with donations.
