A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
As we start the 2012-2013 year for the Indian River County Bar, I must acknowledge and thank President Mark Hill for his leadership over the past year. As Mark and I recently discussed, he had been on the Board over 7 years. That is quite a commitment and we are a better bar for his service.
This past year was packed with activity for the Bar Association. With the considerable effort of Erin Grall, we launched a new website which will provide us with better access to each other and allow the public better access to its legal community. We have also continued the tradition of giving back to the community by again combating the doctors in Sawbones v. Jawbones. Although we did not win this year, we are resolute in our desire to reclaim our trophy next year and were successful in doubling our fundraising efforts for the United Way.
This time of year is an opportunity to reflect and think about ways to improve the Board’s services to our members. Our function as directors is to be of service to you. We want to take actions which give the greatest benefits for the entire Bar; we cannot do so without your input. We have an energetic and enthusiastic Board, but we need you to let us know how we can help you. Our Board represents a wide array of experience and practices; contact any one of the members with ideas on making the practice of law or the administration of justice better in our community.
I look forward to the honor of serving as President of the Indian County Bar Association over the coming year, and hope I can fill the very large shoes of my predecessors!
With best wishes,
Indian River County Bar Association
