Take charge of making sure your Bar address is correct

first_img Take charge of making sure your Bar address is correct Take charge of making sure your Bar address is correct It is now easier for Florida Bar members to update their address information in the official Bar records thanks to a recent improvement in the Bar’s Web site.Not only can members now “proof” their data, but also control what is “on file” with the Bar.Members need only to log on to www.flabar.org. Once there, click on “Member Services” in the blue field to the left and a link to a “Membership Records Change of Address Form” will appear on the screen. Lawyers may then key in their own address changes, which will be sent directly into the membership records database.“This new system will relieve the staff in the Membership Records Department from having to manually type in members’ addresses,” said Membership Records Supervisor Willie Mae Shepherd.Before address changes can be made, however, lawyers will first have to provide their Bar number, date of birth, and the year they became a Bar member. This information is needed to register on the Bar’s storefront, is a security feature, and only has to be done once. Registered members will come back and put in their username (which is their Bar number) and whatever password they have selected, and then make the necessary updates. Only members who register on-line can update their own data.center_img August 15, 2003 Regular Newslast_img
