2023-2024 Committee Members:
Committees are a great way to get involved with your local bar association, network with your colleagues and become a leader in your legal community.
On May 12th, the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Lawyers for Literacy Committee was honored with the Outstanding Community Partner Award at the 2023 Florida Literacy Awards Luncheon for their commitment and dedication to promoting literacy in the community. The Lawyers for Literacy Committee has been instrumental in supporting literacy programs for children in low-income areas and providing resources and training for teachers and parents. This award is a well-deserved recognition of their invaluable contribution to the community.
PBCBA is offering a new book club with one book per quarter that will be promoted to read, followed by a discussion about the book. The next book is Easy Beauty: A Memoir from Chloé Cooper Jones – Pulitzer Prize finalist, philosophy professor, and Whiting Creative Nonfiction Grant recipient – a groundbreaking memoir about disability, motherhood, and a journey to far-flung places in search of a new way of seeing and being seen.
The discussion for this book will be held live via Zoom on Monday, July 10, 2023, from 12:00 P.M. – 1:00 P.M.
