Welcome to your new Wild Apricot website
As the 2022-2023 President of the Lakeland Bar Association, I am excited for the upcoming year for our organization. Your Board of Governors and our Executive Director (Lisa Oliver) have been working hard to plan our annual calendar of luncheons and events, secure interesting speakers. and get our ducks in a row to make this a successful year for the LBA. We look forward to all of you either renewing your membership or joining the Bar to enjoy all the benefits the LBA has to offer to you and your fellow lawyers in our community.
The Lakeland Bar Association is proud to be the largest voluntary bar association in our County with a continually growing membership base of approximately 225 attorneys, judges and legal professional. We are very proud of our longstanding history in the legal community and the work done by the many past presidents of our organization. So much so, that we honored the LBA’s past presidents at our January 2022 luncheon which boasted 16 past presidents in attendance. The message at last April’s meeting from our past presidents was loud and clear - their time in the LBA was special to them and was central to building lifelong, meaningful relationships.
In 2023, our meetings will continue to be held at the Lakeland Country Club on Lake Hollingsworth on the second Friday of each month. We will hold seven (7) luncheons this year which will all include a free buffet style lunch for our members with rotating menus (including desserts). A few of these luncheons will be CLE opportunities. Additionally, we look forward to another fun private Aprons event opportunity at the Lake Miriam Publix Aprons Cooking Class, our annual golf tournament, and a Spring Bench Bar BBQ and Bluegrass party at Fresco’s underground.
I wish everyone a healthy and happy year ahead and make the choice to join us and the fun year ahead with your fellow friends and colleagues at the LBA.
