My fellow members;

             It is an honor to be President of the South Palm Beach County Bar Association this year. I look forward to a new year with new ideas for programs to benefit the membership.  I am fortunate to collaborate with a Board of Directors who all are committed to bring their best to our Association.  We were fortunate to have Seema Patel hold down the fort for us as temporary Executive Director while Linda Oroz, our Executive Director, was out on maternity leave.  We are happy to have Linda back working as always for the success of our organization.

             Thanks to the leadership of our Past President Andy Dector, the hard work of our Board of Directors and our Executive Director we had an amazing year.  Our annual Holiday Party, Barrister Tennis Bash and Golf Tournament were great events.  We appreciate the support of all our event sponsors!

            The Installation Gala at Woodfield Country Club was a great success with almost 250 in attendance.  Judge Jessica Ticktin was awarded the Distinguished Jurist of the Year. We were honored to have over 30 judges coming from county court, circuit court and the 4th DCA in attendance along with the current President of the Florida Bar.  It was a wonderful evening.

            Our monthly luncheons will continue to be held at Morton’s Steakhouse in Boca Raton. We will continue to have speakers who are interesting and dynamic. Our committee chairs are already working on CLE programs and networking events.  New and fun ideas for events with FAWL and Legal Aid are being discussed.

            It is satisfying to see that the services the Association offers the members are useful and enjoyed. Undoubtedly, the growth of this organization is sustained by the personal friendships and business relationships that develop among the members.  I thank you, the members, who participate with your friends and colleagues in our signature events, lunches, and committee events for making us strong.

We look forward to seeing you in the fall to start another fabulous year.

Enjoy the summer!

Holly G. Gershon, President- 2019-2020
South Palm Beach County Bar Association
