The Florida Bar’s Environmental and Law Use Law Section (“ELULS” or the “Section”) was established during the 1977-1978 Bar year providing a forum for attorneys to share in technical and legal knowledge related to environmental and land use law. Each year, the Section provides seminars and workshops as well as publications related to these practice areas. The Section publishes the comprehensive Florida Environmental and Land Use Law Treatise on-line for use by Section members. By maintaining existing service and offering new services as needed, ELULS provides strong support to lawyer and affiliate practitioners while fostering a sense of community and collegial exchange.
The Section has developed this Strategic Plan (the “Plan”) to provide excellent member services while adapting to the current economic climate. The Plan development process took into consideration the needs of our members through surveys of members and covers all aspects of Section operations.
The Section updated our mission statement to ensure it reflects the current needs of our members. The Section also comprehensively reviewed our goals while taking a balanced view across all Section services, activities and initiatives. Goals and performance measures generally fall within seven (7) areas: Membership, Committees & Leadership Development, Affiliate Members, Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”), Law Schools, Section Communications, and Budget and Finance.
This Plan will be implemented in a manner that ensures achievement of its objectives with the flexibility to respond as developments warrant. The Section’s leadership will routinely consider and pursue the relevant elements of this Strategic Plan in their activities. The Section will routinely and consistently promote awareness, and implementation, of this Plan through communication with the membership. The Section will prepare and provide to the general membership an annual report on the Section’s achievement of the goals contained in the Plan.
