The Florida Bar

Standing Committees
Annual Convention

The scope and function of the Annual Convention Committee is to assist the president in the planning and coordination of the June Florida Bar Annual Convention. The committee is appointed by the president early in the administrative year. From within the committee, members are given responsibilities for entertainment, sponsorships and other events to assist the president in the general planning of the meeting. The committee will usually meet as early as twelve months prior to the Annual Convention for an initial planning session. Additional planning meetings occur over a nine month period between July and March. At these meetings members may offer suggestions to the president regarding speakers, entertainment, and general format, and receive instructions concerning their individual responsibilities.
