Mission Statement

The South Palm Beach County Bar Association's Diversity & Inclusion Committee is committed to advancing diversity and encouraging the inclusion of different perspectives, ideas, and experiences within the legal profession. Our mission is to foster an environment where individuals of diverse race, color, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, nationality, age, disability, and marital and parental status may thrive professionally and contribute to the goals of the South Palm Beach County Bar Association.

Scholarship Program

The objective of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee scholarship program is to aid a diverse group of lawyers and include them to become involved and contribute to the goals of the South Palm Beach Bar Association (SPBCBA).  Those selected for the scholarship will receive a complimentary year of membership to the SPBCBA and a $500.00 credit to use to attend SPBCBA’s monthly lunches, CLEs and other signature events (i.e., Holiday Party or Annual Installation Gala).

2. Any attorney interested in participating with the SPBCBA who has a financial burden and cannot afford a membership to SPBCBA or the monthly luncheons and events due to the cost.  Those applicants whose firms will reimburse him or her for SPBCBA dues and events are not eligible; and
