September 2nd Luncheon
Please join us on Friday, September 2nd, for CFAWL's September luncheon at the Citrus Club. This is an informative luncheon that you don't want to miss! As September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month, we are going to take time next month to address the health of our members - both women and men! Many times, we get too busy with work, bar activities, and taking care of others to address our own health. At this luncheon, we will make sure that we provide you with the tools and information you need to prevent you from ignoring your own health! We will hear from amazing speakers on various health issues, including new studies and technologies that can ensure we live long, healthy lives!
Our luncheon will also include a visit by the mammogram bus, which will be parked outside the Citrus Club. You do not need a prescription to receive a mammogram on the bus - you just need to sign up in advance through Florida Hospital and bring any insurance information with you. If you are interested in this, please click here to fill out the survey by Tuesday, August 16, 2016 at midnight so that we can provide Florida Hospital with information regarding the length of time we will need the bus. You will later be prompted to sign up through Florida Hospital for your appointment.
We would also like to thank Adam T. Magill and Valuation and Litigation Services, LLC for sponsoring this luncheon.
Message from Orange County Bar Association
Dear OCBA Members:
The staff and executive council members of the Orange County Bar Association extend our deepest condolences to the friends and families of the victims of this weekend's tragic attack. We express our thanks to the first responders, law enforcement, and medical personnel who assisted and continue to provide critical services. We know that our city's leaders are working around the clock to coordinate efforts and we are grateful for their leadership.
Many of you have reached out to see how we, as a legal community, can assist in this time of need and we stand ready to do so.
Former Florida Bar president Mayanne Downs, Esq., is working with the City of Orlando, which is establishing a central telephone number for those who wish to make a financial contribution to assist families of the victims. The hotline number is 407-422-4537.
Additionally, the OCBA is asking for interested attorneys to volunteer their time by taking pro bono cases for what will be the myriad legal issues faced by families. If you would like to assist in this capacity, please complete the Volunteer Attorney Form below. You need not be a member of the OCBA to assist.
