Welcome to the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women

Lawyers Association 

Greetings Gwen Cherry Family,

Happy New Year! As 2019 begins, I’m sure many of us have made resolutions as to the goals and vision we want to see for the upcoming 12 months. This year at GSCBWLA, we have so much to look forward to! If your resolution is to build your firm, our Rainmaker's Academy is starting in February. Our ever popular Fancy Hat Day at the Races is returning this March; we will be hosting CLE webinars so that we can reach our members throughout the state; and we will be working with incarcerated women to ensure that they are treated with dignity during their time behind bars. Our first mixer for the new year will be on January 17 at Tarpon River Brewing in Ft. Lauderdale. Please stay tuned for the date of our first membership meeting in February. 

As always, I look forward to your thoughts, your feedback, and to having a year where we can proudly look back and say that we left a positive footprint on our community. 

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.” ― Neil Gaiman

In solidarity,
