In order to increase membership and participation in the Florida Bar Business Law Section, the Membership Committee has developed a strategic plan to communicate the benefits of membership through multiple channels. The Committees immediate objectives are to: (1) enhance our relationship with law schools throughout Florida; (2) create and distribute through the website and social media promotional videos; (3) reach out to potential new members through existing members and law firms; (4) plan and host social events with young lawyers and other sections of the Florida Bar; (5) promote the Section’s mentoring program; and (6) reach out to current members by sending them updates of current events and news of the Florida Bar Business Law Section.
