A Tropical Get-Away!
We all need a little wind put back in our sails! On July 16-17, Central Florida will be awash with voluntary bar association leaders as we dock for two action-packed days at the Margaritaville Resort Orlando. True to Jimmy Buffet’s love for the islands, the new resort, located in Kissimmee, captures that Caribbean feeling and provides a place to get away from it all while finding more than you ever expected.
Coming to paradise to work is a bit unusual, but so is this conference. The annual Voluntary Bar Leaders Conference is a meeting designed to help lawyers and bar executive directors escape from the routine grind and discover new resources to help them become top-notch leaders.
The Voluntary Bar Liaison Committee has put together another fantastic conference. There are more general sessions scheduled this year with important rebound and recovery information to help voluntary bars bounce back from the impacts of the pandemic. We will also continue our tradition of providing breakout sessions with helpful association best practices for both large and small size bars. Being back together again will make it an amazing weekend.
Incoming President Mike Tanner will host a town-hall style conversation with voluntary bar leaders on Saturday, July 17. You will not want to miss this special event. Tanner will be sworn in as President of the Florida Bar on June 10 in Orlando.
