Message from the Chair, June 2023

I hope everyone had successful meetings at the Florida Bar’s Annual Convention. Click here to view the Business Law Section slate for the 2023-2024 Bar Year. To everyone in a leadership position, congratulations and thank you all for your service to the BLS! The Section continues to do great work because of the commitment of all of you.

We are excited to return to the Ritz Carlton for the annual Business Law Section Labor Day Retreat. Please plan to attend the Legislative Update on Friday morning, September 1. We will circulate the link to register for the retreat and to book your hotel room in the next few weeks. Retreat Chair, Bob Charbonneau, and his talented committee have been hard at

work to make sure this Labor Day Retreat is spectacular. We look forward to seeing you in Naples.

For those of you that are early planners, the Florida Bar winter meetings are in Tampa from January 23 to January 26, 2024.

And the annual Executive Council Spring Retreat will be in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK) from April 3 to April 7, 2024 with a post trip to the Scottish Highlands from April 8 to April 12, 2024. We are planning a memorable trip and hope to have the registration link available by Thanksgiving or shortly thereafter. To quote a great Scottish saying, Lang mae yer lum reek,

which literally means “long may your chimney smoke,” but more accurately is translated in Mr. Spock’s famous words, “live long and prosper.”

Thank you again for all you do.

Mark Stein, BLS Chair
