SPBC FAWL PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

THANK YOU FOR A MEMORABLE YEAR

Dear Honorable Judiciary, Members, Sponsors and Guests,

I am honored to have been entrusted with leading the organization this past year and for the opportunity to contribute to the continued growth of SPBC FAWL. The South Palm Beach County Chapter of FAWL was founded in 2003.  The Chapter’s mission is to advance the professional status of women lawyers, to promote the rights of women generally, to enhance the visibility of women within the legal profession and within their communities, and to create and maintain supportive networks among women in the legal and other professions.

As the sun sets on my year as SPBC FAWL President, I take a moment to reflect on the year and consider what a year it has been.  It has been interesting and even though we were entering our second year of a global pandemic, we came together as a group and evolved in our programming to accommodate the times.  From outdoor events to zoom networking, the cohesion of the group has permeated throughout. 

We continued to support each other and enjoyed dynamic lunchtime speakers, zoom Peloton fundraising and outreach to the local community. We become empowered through networking with each other by opening these doors and making new connections.  We have welcomed new members and celebrated the achievements of our veteran members. 

It takes a collective effort to maintain the growth of a voluntary bar organization during a time of global crisis and I would like to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation to the Board for their dedication and hard work.  I want to thank everyone for the opportunity to serve as your President this year.

While the year is coming to a close, I will be passing the torch over your new President Kara Brotman, who has been a dedicated long-time member of this organization.  I am excited that we will be honoring Past President Ellen Leibovitch as the Woman Lawyer of the Year. Ellen has been SPBC FAWL’s perennial Chairman of the Past Presidents’ Committee/Woman Lawyer of the Year Ceremony.  We will be honoring Ellen and installing Kara as the incoming President on June 28, 2022 at the Woodfield Country Club.  I look forward to seeing you all.

Best wishes to you and yours,

Lisa Lullove Selinger
