Friends of 440 GALA in October

The Friends of 440 is a collegial group focused on the community of workers’ compensation interests. Each year it hosts an annual Awards Banquet, and recently celebrated its fiftiethyear. This year the banquet will be October 24, 2015 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The RWVP date is October 10, 2014. The Friends are honoring four individuals for their dedication to the workers’ compensation marketplace and the organizations. This year’s honorees are Barry A. Pemsler, Esq., Robert J. Rodriguez, Esq., Mark A. Touby, Esq., and Joan I. Valdes Esq.

This kind of announcement reminds me that workers’ compensation in Florida is more than a practice, it is a community. It is populated by some really fine people who strive to make Florida a better place. I am proud of the many members of The Florida Bar who contribute to their community, our state, and this area of practice.
