Publications Committee

Committee Chair and Editor-In-Chief: Jacquelyn Franco, Esq. of Backus Carranza & Burden

The Publications Committee produces Communiqué, the official publication of the Clark County Bar Association. Committee members write articles themselves as well as solicit articles from other professionals on assigned topics. The level of participation on this committee varies. A committee member can simply attend the meetings regularly and help plan the editorial calendar, or they can take on more responsibilities from writing to securing authors and articles for future issues. Some committee members serve as editors and are responsible for copy editing the content of each issue. Copy editors spend about three to five hours per month proofreading assigned sections and must be able to turn around their assignments in 24 to 48 hours. Although many committee members have prior experience writing for their law school journals or college newspapers, such experience is not necessary. Participation on the Publications Committee is limited to current attorney and JD members of the CCBA. Meetings are spent brainstorming story ideas and matching topics with potential authors. The Publications Committee meets at noon on the first Tuesday of every month typically. To confirm when and where the next meeting of this committee will be held, contact the CCBA office at (702) 387-6011.
