Message from the Chair

Image of a smiling man with a library in the background We have approached the midpoint of the Bar year, and I am pleased to report on our successes so far and our plans for the remainder of the year. I need to begin by thanking our new liaison with The Florida Bar, Brittany Baxter, for her tireless efforts in helping our Executive Council with all the planning, budgeting, and implementing involved in fulfilling our goals. In October, we held the 49th Annual Public Employment Labor Relations Forum in Orlando. This joint conference between our Section and the City, County, and Local Government Section was particularly noteworthy this year given the number of recent changes in public sector labor law. Thank you to Janeia Ingram, the co-chair of the program from our Section, and all the excellent speakers for putting on a great seminar with valuable information for practitioners. If you missed it, you can still access the program and its materials at The Florida Bar’s website.
