Who We Are And Why You Fit
The Florida Bar Elder Law Section exists to cultivate and promote professionalism, experience, and knowledge in the practice of law regarding issues affecting the elderly and persons with special needs, and advocates on behalf of its members. The Elder Law Annual Update and Hot Topics is the Section’s flagship program designed to reach its membership as well as the general membership of the Florida Bar.
Over the past few years, the Section has made adjustments to this program to increase the reach of the program. Such efforts are paying great dividends. One major change was to step away from being simply a certification review course and expand to offer both intermediate and cutting edge advanced topics. This effort is bringing both new attorneys to the Section and retaining established members. In essence making this the must attend event of the year for Florida Elder Law Attorneys!
As this growth in membership has continued we have also increased Section Sponsors. We have used this event as our gateway to new sponsors of our Section. Last year we added several new sponsors. Still, we continue to have gaps in certain service areas requested by our members. Therefore, we are continuing to seek out additional people to join our Section.
The benefit of our Section is more than some of the traditional sections' with the Florida Bar; we are able to change as we experience growth. When our sponsors make requests, we seek to accommodate them. We have made several changes for the upcoming 2016 Annual Update.
- Sponsors will receive a list of anticipated attendees prior to the event.
- Breaks have been expanded to allow for additional opportunities to network.
- Lunch will be for networking not bonus speaker events.
- After hours event will be extended with more opportunities for sponsor involvement.
- All sponsors will get a list of actual attendees.
So what do we need?
We need you and your company. We need to know what you want as a sponsor so we can facilitate your needs. They are not carved in stone. If there is something you would like, tell us. Obviously, the more you participate, the more we can offer.
