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 more than 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 by 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. We are excited to build on last year's successful programs. The luncheon speakers/programs so far confirmed for 2014-2015 include the President of the Florida Bar, a US Major General, a NASA Inspector General as well as our annual 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, Tennis Tournament, Softball Tournament, and Installation Banquet will afford you the chance to build better social relationships with your peers. 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 member attorneys, judges and court staff in Martin County is online and the FaceBook Directory of all in the legal community is scheduled for publication in early 2015 (note: only MCBA members will have full profiles with pictures).
Please join me, and our more than 400 members, and take advantage of all of the benefits the Martin County Bar Association has to offer.
Jennifer Alcorta Waters, 2014-2015 MCBA President
