Chair's Message

Section Ready to Take on Challenges of the New Bar Year

I am both humbled and excited to serve as the Appellate Practice Section's Chair for the 2015-16 year. I am in the enviable position of leading the Section at a time when its finances have never been stronger. The Section's reserves are at an all-time high, and Immediate Past Chair Ceci Berman began the process of addressing the long range planning for the Section in light of these reserves. Ceci spearheaded a survey which was sent out to Section members earlier this year, and the results of that survey were discussed by the Executive Council at The Florida Bar's Annual Meeting in June. Also at that meeting, the Section was approached by representatives of The Florida Bar Foundation which provides funds for indigent legal services, and which has received substantial contributions from several other Sections in the recent past. Funding for that organization and its critical work has declined greatly as interest rates have fallen since the financial crisis of several years ago.
