Missouri Bar Protest and Dues Refund Procedure
Any member of The Missouri Bar who believes that a specific activity of The Missouri Bar supported by enrollment fees is outside of The Missouri Bar’s proper scope, may direct a letter to the Executive Director stating what activity is challenged.
Upon receipt of the member’s letter, the Executive Director shall calculate the portion of the member’s enrollment fee reasonably in dispute, place that amount in an interest-bearing account, advise the member of the calculated amount of his or her enrollment fee which supports the activity, and how this amount was calculated. The Executive Director shall then refer the matter to the Board of Governors or its Executive Committee for consideration.
For further information, contact Sebrina Barrett, Executive Director of The Missouri Bar, 573-635-4128.
