I joined the Out-of-State Division shortly after moving from Florida in 2009 following a networking reception in Atlanta. The Division provides many ways for out-of-state attorneys to get involved including multiple committees and leadership roles. Over the years, my involvement with the Division has provided me with the opportunity to meet Bar members throughout the country, developing both personal and professional relationships that otherwise would not have existed.
Initially I joined the Out-of-State Division because it was a great way to meet and network with other Florida-barred attorneys living outside of Florida, but quickly realized the important role that the Division plays in representing the interests of out of state Florida-barred attorneys. I am thankful to be involved in reviewing the rules and legislation that affects how attorneys practice law in the state of Florida.
My membership in the OOSD opened so many doors from the very moment I joined as its YLD Liaison. The Executive Council immediately welcomed and invited me to become more involved, which resulted in many leadership opportunities and friendships along the way.
I enjoy being a member of the OOSD because I have met members of The Florida Bar who practice in many different states. The OOSD has also provided me with the unique opportunity to interact with the leaders of The Florida Bar at our annual joint meeting with the Board of Governors.
