PALM BEACH COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION BULLE IN WWW.PALMBEACHBAR.ORG | OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION | SEPTEMBER 2018 Committee for Diversity & Inclusion: Battles over Equality and Liberty On January 31, 2017 the PBCBA Bar building caught fire due to a car accident on Belvedere Road. John Whittles is pictured here looking through the roof of the building. After eighteen months of the staff being displaced, we are happy to announce that our building will be ready to welcome members soon. We hope that you will show your support and help us celebrate by purchasing signage in your name including the year you joined the Palm Beach County Bar Association. Your name will be proudly seen on our Is Your Firm Supporting Diversity? The keynote speaker will be Rachel F. Moran, Dean Emerita and Michael J. Connell Distinguished Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. Please join us on September 21, 2018 as Dean Moran will educate lawyers on the immigration challenges recipients of DACA face in their professional and personal lives. This discussion will further assist attorneys in identifying and addressing potential implicit biases when facing this immigration law issue. “GRAND RE-OPENING CELEBRATION PLAQUE” John Whittles (President 2016) looks on in disbelief after the fire on the morning of January 31, 2017 and displayed in our Office for many years to come.
