Final Report of the Special Committee to Improve the Delivery of Legal Services

 ALMs Assist Miami-Dade Crestivew Towers Residents

 ALM's Responsibilities:

At-Large Members (ALMs) are elected to the Executive Council as representatives of the Section’s members. In addition to working on Section projects, the ALMs serve as the channel of communication between the Section leadership and the members. The ALMs represent the Section throughout the State, participate on the Section’s committees, keep current on issues of concern to the members, and communicate regularly with the members. It is through the ALMs that the work of the RPPTL Executive Council is disseminated to the entire Real Property Probate & Trust Law Section (RPPTL) members. The work of the ALMs is key to the success of the RPPTL Section, the largest and most successful section of the Florida Bar with over 11,000 members.

Becoming an ALM:

If you are interested in learning more about the important work of the ALMs or in applying to become an ALM, please e-mail the Director, Steven H. Mezer at for additional information.
