Winter Haven Women's Bar Association

     The Winter Haven Women's Bar Association is a voluntary bar association
for lawyers in the Winter Haven and surrounding communities in Polk County.
The group was formed in September of 1996 as a networking and professional
exchange group.  The group meets monthly for a lunch meeting at Christy's
Restaurant at 1100 Third St. S.W., Winter Haven, Florida.  For regular meetings,
an RSVP is required to the group's president by the second Monday of each
calendar month.  The group's president and contact information are stated below.
     The group publishes a monthly newsletter containing member notes with
information about the group's member, CLE opportunities, new laws, and statistics focusing on issues affecting women in the practice of law.  A copy of the newsletter is available, by request, to the organization's president.
     The group consists of 20 women attorneys from eastern Polk County.  
A wide variety of legal practices are represented. Areas of practice include: personal injury, criminal, civil, estate planning, real estate, business, guardianships, and family law.  One attorney is in-house counsel at a large trucking corporation.   The members names, addresses, primary practice areas and telephone numbers are listed below.
       The group likes to network with other professional organizations, and would be glad to discuss a joint meeting.  If another legal organization, accounting group, or other professional associations would like to organize a joint meeting or other activities, please contact the Winter Haven Women's Bar Association's President.
