Fall. You know what that means, right? Pumpkin spice lattes. Leaves changing color. The temperature begins dropping. And ... wait a minute. This is Florida. So, the latter two probably aren't really true (unless you live in Tallahassee, and then maybe). While fall in Florida does mean pumpkin spice lattes (and hurricanes — ugh!), what gets me excited about fall is the Appellate Practice Section's Fall Meeting!

Normally, our Fall Meeting is held jointly with either the retreat or the Florida DCA Judicial Education Conference. The retreat this year was a bust — thanks COVID! And the DCA Judicial Conference is next year. So, this year we are going to have our Fall Executive Council and Committee Meetings by Zoom on September 23rd and 24th.
