The Florida Bar

Standing Committees
Citizens Advisory Committee

The Florida Bar Citizens Advisory Committee is an advisory group of 12 citizens with varied interests and backgrounds who serve to provide two-way communication between the state's major citizen constituencies and the Bar's Board of Governors. Its objectives are to serve as a feedback mechanism and sounding board on Bar plans and programs and to advise the Bar regarding public understanding and support of significant legal/justice issues. Three attorney members are appointed annually to serve as resources. The Forum meets three times a year, often in conjunction with Board of Governors meetings.
