We are proud to announce that Ron Herman has been appointed co-chair of a committee of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers, Palm Beach County Chapter . Honored to be selected by the FAWL Board of Directors, Ron will be co-chairing the Mentoring Committee for the 2014-2015 year.
Ron has always been dedicated to promoting and mentoring other members of our community and in this new leadership role, he will focus on mentoring younger or less experienced female attorneys. The Mentoring Committee is also in charge of setting up intimate, monthly luncheons, featuring engaging speakers and providing an open forum for members to discuss various issues regarding the advancement of women lawyers.
The Florida Association for Women Lawyers (FAWL) was founded in 1951 and strives to propel female attorneys into economic, social, and leadership roles of power and influence. The connectivity, resources, and benefits provided by FAWL are invaluable to its members, especially during these challenging economic times.
Membership in one’s local chapter provides young and inexperienced lawyers with the unique opportunity to propel their careers to the next level of success. One such benefit is the opportunity to attend local events and seminars that provide both networking and career development opportunities, such as the monthly luncheons put on by the Mentoring Committee and Attorney Ron Herman.
Since 1984, State FAWL has maintained a non-voting liaison seat on The Florida Bar’s Board of Governors. FAWL is a proud member of the National Women’s Bar Association, the National Conference of Women’s Bar Associations, and the National Association of Women Lawyers.
