The seminar was titled "How to Get Elected, Without Getting Indicted." The seminar, approved by The Florida Bar, provided valuable insight into the process of campaigning and the pitfalls that await the unwary candidate. Many election law issues were discussed and strategies for a successful and ethical campaign were presented. "Seminars like these are a great way to help those looking to run for office to maintain the upmost professionalism and ethical standards during the campaigning process, ensuring the overall integrity of the election system," Anthony Suarez told fellow members of the bar. The association plans to introduce this seminar in the future in South Florida. Pictured from left to right: Richard R. Robles, Esq., Immediate Past President, PRBA; Marie E.
