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.
The Brevard County Bar Association was honored to co-sponsor the Civility Matters Luncheon at Tuscany Grill on September 27th with the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). Special thanks to BCBA secretary David Alpizar for spearheading this event. The event was a success and was well attended by our membership.
On October 5th Justice Fred Lewis from the Florida Supreme Court came to Brevard County to present the Justice Teaching Training program at the Brevard County Commission Boardroom in Viera. Judge Kelly McKibben organized the event and spent a lot of time and energy to make it a reality. We are looking forward to expanding the involvement of Brevard County attorneys in this great educational initiative.
We have three remaining events planned for our members this fall:
October 25, 2018: CLE Luncheon-Blocking & Tackling Your Way to Increased Business Development (1 CLE Credit) (limited to 25 participants) (11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.) at the Eau Gallie Yacht Club.
November 29, 2018: Fall CLE: Technology Roadshow (CLE Credits: 4 Technology, 2 Ethics, 4 General) (**NOTE THE CHANGE IN DATE**) (noon-5:00 p.m.). This will take place at the Space Coast Health Foundation Center for Collaboration, 1100 Rockledge Blvd Suite #100, Rockledge, FL 32955.
December 14, 2018: BCBA Annual Holiday Party. This event will take place at Mercedes Benz Porsche Audi of Melbourne, located at 509 E Nasa Blvd, Melbourne, FL 32901) (6:00 p.m.). We are thankful for the generous sponsorship of Alan H. Landman, P.A., Lexis Nexis and Mercedes Benz Porsche Audi of Melbourne which helps make this event possible.
We are excited about these upcoming events as we continue our mission to serve our membership by offering more programming and CLEs. Now that the Florida Bar requires technology CLE credits as part of the 3-year reporting cycle, the Fall CLE will help our members fulfill this requirement and will also provide our members with an opportunity to socialize. In connection with the Fall CLE we will be having a lunch and a cocktail reception to follow.
We are in the process of finalizing bids to complete the renovation of the new BCBA office in Rockledge. We are pleased to announce that Don Herndon with Classic Wood Flooring has graciously agreed to donate the flooring for our new building. We look forward to creating a professional working environment that can serve our staff and members.
I welcome feedback from any of the members, as well as any ideas for future programming. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 321-503-4014.
