Dear Bar Member,
|Submit Committee Preference Form by Jan. 15|
Please consider joining other dedicated Bar members who volunteer their time for the betterment of our profession by serving on a Bar committee. Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance our profession and to improve the services we provide the citizens of our state and our members.
It is a privilege to practice law in this state, and with that privilege comes a responsibility. We must work together to address the many challenges facing our profession. You can be a part of our joint effort; simply click continue and submit your committee preference form by January 15, 2020. There are many committees to choose from and you can find a description of each committee on this website.
Some of the factors I will consider in making committee appointments are diversity, including, but not limited to, gender, ethnicity, geography, practice area; prior service to The Bar and voluntary bar organizations; and the need to infuse new members into a committee. I will also consider previous committee participation and contributions.
BY JANUARY 15, 2020, PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
- If you are currently serving on a Standing Committee and your term expires in 2020, you must submit a new committee preference form by January 15, 2020 to be considered for reappointment. To check your term, select your committee and find your name in the members listing.
- If you are not currently serving on a Standing Committee, and want to be considered, submit the committee preference form by January 15, 2020. 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 the committee preference form by January 15, 2020, to be considered for reappointment.
Serving on a Florida Bar committee can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance our profession. Thank you in advance for your service.
The Florida Bar
