LBA's Year in Photos

Annual Voluntary Bar Conference— Always Worth the Time


In July,  LBA President Art Fulmer, Jr. and Executive Director Lisa Oliver represented the Lakeland Bar Association at the Florida Voluntary Bar Leaders Conference in Orlando.  The conference provided a wealth of ideas and opportunities for improving the effectiveness of voluntary bar associations.

The breakout sessions offered chances to connect and learn the wonderful things happening in the voluntary bar associations around the state.

Our Florida Bar President, Michael Higer,  shared his goals and vision with those in attendance. We are pleased to announce that he will be our keynote speaker at our Law Day Luncheon on  May 11, 2017.

 Like many other local bar associations, the LBA is continually striving to enhance the quality of the legal profession in our organization.
