PBCBA BAR BULLETINS JUNE 2020 BULLETIN - Page 4

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE T Jessica Callow 2019-20 PBCBA President I dedicate my final President’s Message to all of our Palm Beach County Bar Association (“PBCBA”) members. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have met so many fellow members this year at Bar events or in their capacities as Committee Chairs and Committee members. Our members are attorneys, judges, mediators, arbitrators, and paralegals. Their varied backgrounds and experiences make the PBCBA an organization that reflects our legal community and enables our members to learn from one another. While we didn’t get to complete every networking event, CLE, or committee meeting we planned this year due to the pandemic, I’m awed by everything we managed to accomplish and know our Bar will continue to innovate in the years to come. Thank you for trusting me to lead the PBCBA this year and allowing me to represent you to the best of my abilities. I’m eternally grateful to each one of you and for this amazing experience.
