QUALITY OF LIFE IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS SERIES

“We are proud that the PBCBA excels at providing networking and CLE opportunities, but those ingredients alone do not address the holistic needs of our members. The ‘Quality of Life is the Key to Happiness’ series is our effort to address the other important priorities of our members such as housing, mental and physical health, raising children in Palm Beach County, and more through dialogue and resource sharing.” – Grasford W. Smith, PBCBA President
