Dear Fellow Bar Members:
Please join one of our committees of dedicated members who volunteer their time for the betterment of our profession.
It is a privilege to practice law in this state, and with that privilege comes a responsibility. I need your energy and your enthusiasm! We must work together to address the many challenges facing our profession. You can be a part of our joint effort; simply submit your committee preference form by January 16, 2018.
Serving on a Florida Bar committee can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance our profession and to improve the services we provide the citizens of our state and our members.
Some of the factors I will consider in making committee appointments are: prior service to The Florida Bar and voluntary bar organizations; the need to infuse new members into a committee; and diversity of gender, ethnicity, geography, and area of practice. I will also consider previous committee participation and contributions.
BY JANUARY 16, 2018 – PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
If you are currently serving on a Standing Committee and your term expires in 2018,
If you are not currently serving on a Standing Committee, and want to be considered,
submit the committee preference form by January 16, 2018. Your comments concerning your participation in Bar-related activities, your qualifications and interests will be particularly helpful.
If you are serving on a substantive law committee and want to continue,
you must submit your committee preference form by January 16, 2018, to be considered for reappointment.
Leadership Academy applications are also due by January 16, 2018. Information is available at floridabar.org/leadershipacademy.
Thank you in advance for your interest in helping The Florida Bar maintain its reputation for excellence. I look forward to working with you in the upcoming Bar year.
Michelle R. Suskauer
