THE VOLUNTARY BAR LEADERS CONFERENCE, hosted by the Voluntary Bar Liaison Committee and the Clearwater Bar Association, was held July 19-20 in Clearwater Beach. Designed to promote leadership and improve existing programs of local and specialty bar associations, attendees from across the state participated in workshops related to the operation of their associations. Topics included issues affecting staffed, nonstaffed, and specialty bars; recruitment of members; complying with state and federal tax filing requirements; tapping into resources of the ABA, The Florida Bar, and The Florida Bar Foundation; and how to increase revenues without increasing dues. Pictured from the left are conference Chair Mike Faehner, Bar President Eugene Pettis, and Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, who welcomed the attendees.
