Reporting at the board's October October: see month. 15 meeting, Glazer also discussed cutbacks to the 2004 edition of the Bar Journal directory issue. Glazer noted reducing the directory and redesigning the Web site are related issues, since all the information in the directory is already available on www.flabar.org See .org.

Most of the comments about the directory have focused on the elimination of the section listing all of the courts and judges in the state, Glazer said. The elimination of that and other information saved the Bar about $20,000 on the 2004 directory, not counting savings in staff time.

The committee has not ruled out returning some of the information in the 2005 directory, but for now, "Let's see Let's See was a Canadian television series broadcast on CBC Television between September 6, 1952 to July 4, 1953.

The forum was scheduled to meet October 25 to discuss the legal needs of children, and will meet in Naples in December in conjunction with the next board meeting. At that session, the forum will be looking at the Clients' Security Fund and at preliminary suggested changes to the Bar's advertising rules.
"They are a very enthusiastic bunch and we need to find ways to better utilize that valuable resource," Glazer said.
