The Brevard County Bar Association

President’s Message

The first half of this Brevard County Bar Association membership year is coming to an end, and I want to
take this opportunity to thank our hardworking board, our members, our Judges, and our sponsors for
their invaluable contributions to our success. Since the current membership year began in July, the
Brevard County Bar Association has hosted a number of events, including events with opportunities to
earn CLE credits. As we plan the second half of our membership year, we are looking forward to
providing even more value to our members.

We began the membership year with a dramatic interpretation of the Dred Scott v. Sanford decision of
the United States Supreme Court. This collaboration with the New Shiloh Christian Center was scripted
and directed by Judge Majeed and was attended by hundreds of members of the community at large.
Attorney-attendees and attorney-participants received 2 hours of CLE credits.

Our Annual Holiday Party was a huge success, with over 200 people registered to attend. Special thanks
to our event sponsors Brevard Mediation Services, Huseby, Gretchen Klayman, Moletteire Injury Law and
Struble, P.A. for helping to make this event possible. I also want to thank President-Elect Guna Ose and
Board Member Valeta Cameron who put in a tremendous amount of work to make the Holiday Party a
reality.

As we look forward to the second half of our membership year, we have several events planned. The
Brevard County Bar Association is conducting the 18th Judicial Circuit High School Mock Trial Competition
on February 4th, 6th and 8th. We are also sponsoring the Law Day Essay, Poster and Video Contest
celebrating the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States
Constitution. The winners of the Contest in each category will be celebrated at a Law Day Dinner on
February 12th.

In addition, we are working to plan the annual BCBA Professionalism Event, the annual Bench-Bar
Softball game, and at least two opportunities to earn CLE credits. We are also quite close to finalizing
the 2019-2020 edition of the BCBA Directory, thanks in large part to the efforts of President-Elect Guna
Ose.

I look forward to finishing out my term as President of the Brevard County Bar Association, and I
welcome feedback from any BCBA member, as well as any ideas for future programming. Feel free to
