When it convenes July 23 on Miami Beach, the Board of Governors is expected, among other things, to review a three-month “beta test” of The Florida Bar Tech Support Helpline, approve two new member benefits, and weigh whether UF mascots “Albert” and “Alberta” qualify as celebrities under Bar advertising rules.

The meeting will be the first helmed by newly sworn President Michael Tanner.

The Board Technology Committee began researching the concept of a tech support helpline last year while it was working with the COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery Task Force on a variety of projects to help members cope with the health crisis.
