Officers / Committees

Congratulations to all newly elected Officers!

Meet your 2018 ABJA President, Laura Stevenson!



Welcome to 2018!!! I am looking forward to serving the ABJA as President this year and supporting and advancing the mission and goals of our organization. We have a great group of dedicated people serving as officers, committee chairs, and members who are committed to the success and future of the ABJA.

I have the honor of working for Judge Caryl E. Delano of the Middle District of Florida in Tampa. I have worked with Judge Delano since her appointment in 2008. Prior to that, I was Judicial Assistant to Judge Catherine Peek McEwen (2005-2010), Judge Thomas E. Baynes (2000-2005), and Judge Paul M. Glenn (1999-2008).

I became a member of the ABJA in 2000. I attended my first conference and became a Certified Bankruptcy Assistant in Orlando in 2007. Since then, I have served as 11th Circuit Representative and Secretary and chaired the Continuing Education and Newsletter Committees. I wish I had not waited seven years to get involved in the ABJA -- my membership has been so rewarding, I should have started sooner!

It has been a pleasure to work with my friends, the dedicated members of the ABJA, and I look forward to continuing the hard work ahead of us. Thank you for being an ABJA member and for allowing me the honor of serving as President.
