Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. Bar Association
Cultivating Excellence & Inclusion in the Legal Profession
I am honored to serve as the 2018-2019 President of the Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. Bar Association. I follow a long line of attorneys who have pursued social justice and inclusion in Miami-Dade County. Perhaps now more than ever our community, and indeed the nation, is in need of focused leadership. The challenges are many and the stakes are incredibly high. But, I am humbled to know that I have been called and given this position for such a time as this. I am encouraged and inspired by the tremendously talented attorneys who will join me on the Executive Board. What I know for sure is that, with your participation, we have the resources, skill, expertise and power to demand and deliver excellence.
My platform is simple: Empower, Engage, Educate.
We will empower our members by providing a road map to develop business and attain economic independence and resilience--recognizing that resilience in this profession requires financial, physical, and mental health.
We will enact strategic partnerships to better serve and engage the community. We can and will step up to provide legal and advisory services to least and left out.
We will educate grassroots leaders and local elected officials to prepare them for the challenges and opportunities ahead.
We invite you to join us.
If you have not done so already, please renew your commitment and membership today. In the coming weeks, we will detail opportunities for you to get involved including through committees and initiatives to advance the mission of our bar association.
Yours in service,
Monique D. Hayes, Esq.
