Please Join LBA in Purchasing & Donating Toys for the
Children in Puerto Rico


The devastation in Puerto Rico due to the recent hurricanes has left thousands of families homeless and without basic necessities. The Lakeland Bar Association, in partnership with Just Dance Academy of Dance & Etiquette, Just Cares, Inc., and the Puerto Rican Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Polk County  is collecting toys for the children of Puerto Rico.

Ana Rivera, President of the Puerto Rican Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Polk County, will be coordinating and shipping toys and supplies to the people of Puerto Rico.

Take a moment and purchase a few toys for this great cause. Please bring new and unwrapped toys to our Presidents BBQ and our November meeting. Our goal is 1,000 toys. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation please make checks payable to The Puerto Rican Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Polk County.

Please feel free to call Lauriane Ciccarelli at 863-370-5337 or 863-686-7136 with any questions you may have.

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.
