Watch Every 20 Years webinar
A webinar about the Benchmarks presentation “Every 20 Years” was recorded in cooperation with the Young Lawyers Division. Annette Pitts, executive director of The Florida Law Related Education Association, explains both the Benchmarks program and the presentation designed to educate the public about the upcoming Constitution Revision Commission, which convenes every 20 years. Those who watch the webinar are considered trained for presenting Benchmarks activities.
