The Brevard County Bar Association

The Brevard County Bar Association (BCBA) is a voluntary professional association with more than 650 attorneys practicing in the 18th Judicial Circuit of Florida. BCBA members work to improve the legal profession, the community in which they live and the administration of justice in society.

While we were spared any significant damage during this hurricane season (which technically isn’t over yet), our neighbors in the Bahamas were not as lucky. I am proud to report that our membership responded to the needs of our Bahamian neighbors and donated truckloads of supplies for the relief effort. Thanks to all who participated and, especially, to Directors David Alpizar and Jay Thakkar who spearheaded the campaign.

The Brevard County Bar Association was honored to co-sponsor the Dred Scott v. Sanford dramatic interpretation with the New Shiloh Christian Center, which also hosted the event at its wonderful facility, on September 14th. Special thanks to our generous sponsors Andrew Pickett, Michael Pirolo and Valeta Cameron and to Judge Majeed for producing and directing this important piece. The event was a success and was well attended by both our membership and the community.

We have a number of other events planned for our membership this Fall. We are planning a CLE for late October and we are putting the finishing touches on our Holiday Party. The Holiday party is currently scheduled for December 6, 2019. Keep an eye out for updates on both events. I want to take a moment to thank our hardworking volunteer Board of Directors for their efforts in helping to coordinate these programs. More events are planned for the Spring as well, so stay tuned.

We are also in the midst of finalizing our 2019-2020 Membership Directory, which we plan on releasing in the next couple of months. In anticipation of this release, we arranged for a professional photographer to take up residence at the BCBA office to provide our membership the opportunity to update their photographs for the Directory. If you have not renewed your membership for the 2019-2020 membership year, please renew online at https://www.brevardbar.org/attorney-resources/membership-information/.

I welcome any feedback or suggestions that you may have for the betterment of our Association, as well as any ideas for future programming. Feel free to contact me at philip@zieslaw.com or 321-610-3707.
