Lakeland Bar Monthly Meetings...
Now you have TWO ways to stay connected and safe!
Lakeland Bar Association will now be offering TWO ways to stay connected at our monthly meeting. We are going HYBRID… This means, based upon your preference, you will be able to enjoy a meal and our program at the Club at Eaglebrooke OR you can ZOOM with us from the comfort of your office or home.
Here are the guidelines for each option:
1. Join us at the Club at Eaglebrooke at NOON on the second Friday of each month. ONLY 40 attendees will be admitted AND each attendee will need to register to attend. Meals will be staff served and each table will have limited seating for continued safety. Our speakers may be virtual at this meeting but it will provide those who are comfortable with an opportunity for socializing.
2. Join us via a ZOOM meeting and watch the meeting while eating your lunch from the comforts of your office or home. Each attendee will need to register to attend and a link and password will be sent to you.
