¡Saludos y bienvenidos!
Welcome to the Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida! We welcome you to explore our website, follow us on social media, and join our organization.
My name is Ana Lopez and it is my honor and privilege to serve as President for 2023. As President, I embrace, with great confidence and optimism, the privilege and responsibility to carry out the mission of the HBACF.
Throughout my time with the HBACF, both as a regular member and as a Board Member, I have watched as the organization has become bigger, stronger and has increased its reach across Florida. I have observed as each President has added to the already rich history of the organization, and has impacted the community of Central Florida, each in their own way.
The HBACF is a very active bar association. With a membership that consists of over a hundred Hispanic attorneys (in private, corporate, government, and public interest positions), judges, law professors, and law students, we are truly the voice of Orlando's Hispanic legal community. Our goal is to foster a more diverse legal landscape and to address the many issues that affect the Hispanic community.
Although I strive to continue the great work that was started by Presidents before me, my goals as President of the HBACF are simple:
(1) To ensure that the HBACF is financially and organizationally sound and prepared to meet the challenges of the future;
(2) To continue to provide education and support to the Hispanic community;
(3) To promote the recognition, representation and advancement of the Hispanic community at all levels, including supporting Hispanic attorneys to seek political, governmental, and judicial office; and
(4) To assist law students on their path to a legal degree and mentor young lawyers and guide them as they embark on their legal career on a legal career.
We invite you to reach out to us at email@example.com and attend one our events and join our familia. I look forward to working for you, with you and for the advancement of the Hispanic Community.
Ana Lopez, 2023 HBACF President
