Board Committee Preference

December 10, 2021

Dear Fellow Board Member:

Appointments to Board Committees will begin soon. I am writing to learn your preferences for next year’s Board Committees. Please visit the member portal to access the Board Committee Preference Form, which needs to be completed and submitted by January 17, 2022.  Please include any comments you wish for me to consider when making committee appointments.

Most appointments are one-year terms, with the exception of the Audit, Investment, Program Evaluation, Certification Plan Appeals, Budget and Legislation committees. Your preferences and interests will also be forwarded to the incoming President-Elect Designate and we will make every effort to take them into consideration

In addition to the Board Committees, you will also be selecting your preferences for liaison assignments to the Standing Committees and Sections of The Florida Bar.

It is absolutely critical that you agree to attend the meetings of the assigned committee or section and be familiar with the group’s activities to keep the Board informed.

It is also important for you to keep the committee, section or division informed as to the Board of Governors’ activities and upcoming issues. Engagement with our members in this way is one of our foremost responsibilities.

I appreciate the opportunity to serve as your President during the coming year and look forward to working with each and every one of you. I am thankful for the commitment that each of you make to the advancement of our profession, The Florida Bar and the citizens of Florida.
