The VCBA was very honored to have as its guest speakers for the luncheon the current Florida Bar President, Jesse Diner, and his wife, Adele Stone, who is the current President of the Florida Bar Foundation. The luncheon was also the platform for Volusia County's kickoff of the 'ONE CAMPAIGN', which began in the Fall of 2009, and has been established by the Florida Supreme Court and the Florida Bar Foundation to encourage and facilitate attorneys throughout the state to become more involved in pro bono or free representation for the legally indigent.
