  • Active Social Media Profiles. TBA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts are integrated into The Florida Bar’s vast social media network, so posts about our members’ news, pro bono service, awards and firm milestones get statewide attention.
  • Inspirational Members-Only Awards. Only TBA members can be nominated for our annual awards: Champion for Diversity in the Legal Profession, Martha Barnett Women Lawyers of Achievement, Lifetime Professionalism and Thomas M. Ervin Jr. Distinguished Young Lawyer. Award recipients receive excellent publicity through local media, The Florida Bar News and on social media.

TBA members now can participate in voluntary pro bono service or have new opportunities to meet The Florida Bar’s pro bono goals and objectives – and the need is great in our community.

Involvement in your local bar association through committee service is an excellent way to network with other legal professionals and improve TBA’s key programs. We want our campaign to take the Tallahassee Bar Association to the next level – but we can’t do it without YOU. If you’re not a member yet, please email us and let us know what we can do to encourage your involvement. We welcome new-member referrals, ideas and input – no suggestions are too large or too small.
