Message From the President
On behalf of the Martin County Bar Association (“MCBA”) I welcome you to our website, the on-line portal for the MCBA. We are a Voluntary Bar Association dedicated to serving Martin County’s legal community and legal needs. Our membership of 400 attorneys and legal industry professionals include residents of Martin, Indian River, Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Palm Beach Counties. Our goal is to foster the development of the Martin County legal community through providing high quality continuing legal education, information about our members to the general public, collegial social events and networking opportunities.
The MCBA delivers valuable opportunities to its members. We provide, from August to May, monthly luncheons with CLEs, and the cost of the CLE credit alone covers the cost of the membership. The monthly luncheons are free with your membership and we are excited to build on last year's successful programs. The luncheon speakers this year include the Chief Judge of the 4th District Court of Appeal, the President of the Florida Bar, the Deputy Judge Advocate General of the Unites States Army, the “privacy czar” for the Department of Homeland Security and our Bench-Bar program.
Our luncheons are just the beginning. The MCBA monthly newsletter, The SideBar, provides valuable legal information, and the opportunity to publish your articles as well as advertise your services. Our annual Judicial Reception, Canoe Trip and Installation Banquet will afford you the chance to build better social relationships with your peers. In addition, this year we are planning a softball challenge with the St. Lucie County and Port St. Lucie Bar Associations. Our numerous committees, both substantive and social, offer more opportunities to better your practice, earn additional CLE credits and network with other MCBA members. Our directory of all of the attorneys, judges and court staff in Martin County is online, with only MCBA members having full profiles with pictures.
Please join me, and our 400 members, and take advantage of all of the benefits the MCBA offers. It has been a fantastic year so far, but there is much more to come!
George W. Bush, Jr. MCBA President
