The Florida Bar

Standing Committees
Citizens Advisory

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.
