The Florida Bar

Ready to Get More Involved?

October 13, 2021

The Senior Lawyers Committee addresses the needs and interests of Florida’s senior lawyers through the work done by its standing subcommittees. We are always looking for subcommittee members to bring their ideas, talents and energy to our projects. Subcommittees communicate by email and meet remotely, as necessary; no travel is required. Time commitments are flexible, so you can tailor your level of participation to your own schedule and to your interests.

Does one of the areas listed below match your interests? Email the subcommittee chair or contact person to learn more.

Standing Subcommittees

CLE Subcommittee – Chair: Dick Caldwell

Newsletter Subcommittee – Chair: Susan Healy

Generations Conversations Subcommittee – Contact: Susan Healy (This subcommittee’s goal is to work with young lawyers to create informal mentoring and networking opportunities.)

Webpage Subcommittee – Chair: Colleen Sachs

Membership Committee – Contact: Andromeda Monroe (We are looking for a volunteer to chair this subcommittee.)

You can also get more involved in the work of the Senior Lawyers Committee without joining a subcommittee. The 50 Year Members’ Luncheon uses volunteers to coordinate with law school alumni organizations and to greet the honorees. The Newsletter is always looking for articles, stories, features, poetry and reminiscences; you don’t have to be a member of the subcommittee (or even a member of the Senior Lawyers Committee) to submit your work for publication in Experience Matters. If you know someone who would be a great CLE presenter on a topic of interest to senior lawyers, let our CLE Subcommittee Chair know.

Need more ideas about ways to get involved? Register for our next Senior Lawyers Committee business meeting, Friday, Oct. 15 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., to learn about all the work we are doing.
