1 Ileana H. Azcunaga My name is Ileana Azcunaga and it would be an honor to represent the current and future young lawyers of the OCBA as an At-Large Member. I have recently opened my own law firm, and I have the privilege of being Of Counsel for Bogin, Munns, & Munns. Prior to opening my own law firm I was a Public Defender at the Ninth Judicial Circuit for 2 years and also a civil litigation attorney for McBride, Scicchitano, & Leacox, P.A. I am actively involved in community outreach programs. I have spoken at Rollins College to students about consequences of underage drinking, drug possession, and DUI s, and I hope to make this an annual event. I am actively involved with the Legal Aid Society assisting with pro bono cases, and I assisted the Central Florida Bankruptcy Law Association with their C.A.R.E program as an Honorary Teacher. As an At-Large Member I will work to help promote the interest of all young lawyers and continue to stress the importance of community outreach. Thank you for your vote! Michael D.

Carmody I am a sixth year attorney at the law firm of Rumberger Kirk and Caldwell, P.A. and I have been honored to serve on the Board of Directors for the for the past few years. I have worked diligently for the YLS and have twice been appointed to serve as the Treasurer of YLS. In that position, I manage the operating and charitable accounts for the Section. In the past, I have also served as the Co-Chair and Chair of the YLS Oath of Admissions Ceremony and Reception and have served on various other YLS committees including the Great Oaks Village Fun Day committee. It has been my honor to serve as a member of the YLS Board of Directors and I hope you will consider me for another term. I assure you that I will continue to work hard to promote the interests of the OCBA YLS in our community.
3 Jeffrey S. Elkins I am an attorney at the law firm of Shutts & Bowen LLP, specializing in commercial and construction litigation. It would be an honor to continue my involvement with the YLS by serving on the Board of Directors. I have served as the Chair of the YLS Afternoon at the State Courthouse for the past three (3) years, during which time we have greatly increased the participation and profitability of the event, and as the Co-Chair the YLS Law Clerk Liaison Committee. I have also volunteered as a committee member for the golf tournament, the Law Clerks Reception, and the YLS mentoring program. As an At-Large Board Member, I will continue to support the philanthropic activities that have become the trademark of the YLS, promote the interests of young lawyers of the OCBA, and help improve the growth of the YLS. Thank you for your consideration. Daryl P. Gottlieb It has been a privilege and pleasure serving on the Board these past two years, and I want to thank those of you who supported me in this endeavor. Regardless of these election results, I can only promise that I will continue to exhibit the same character I believe I have demonstrated in the past, which I can only hope is marked by a spirit of service. More specifically, I will continue to create, spearhead, and encourage others to get involved in YLS events. For example, three years ago I helped form, and chaired (and have chaired or cochaired for the three years since) the inaugural Lawyers for Literacy Spelling Bee, which has net over $60,000 for the Adult Literacy League in its first three years as a YLS event. I will continue to participate in YLD Professionalism Panel discussions for first year attorneys; I will continue to serve as a Mentor in the YLS Mentor/Mentee Program; and I will continue to bring new suggestions and ideas to the YLS Board s attention which I feel would improve the quality of the lives of our members and the community at large. The only difference for me, personally, if I am elected to serve another two-year term, is that I will have additional duties and responsibilities which I would not otherwise have. I have loved working with my colleagues on the Board, and we have built such great momentum moving forward, that it would be a shame for it to stop now. As such, it is without reluctance that I unabashedly ask for your trust that I will joyfully and faithfully carry out the above duties when you cast your vote this year.
4 Jerry Lee Hanbery Old Bio - I have wanted to serve the OCBA YLS board since law school. I have always performed well in leadership positions, serving as president of several student organizations while at the University of Florida Law School and Yale Graduate School. A board position would allow me to use my MBA and management experience to run events more efficiently, in a cost effective and dynamic manner. My background in ministry makes me a strong candidate to continue the OCBA s reputation of service to the community. My primary goal would be to help the homeless secure identification papers so that they can access services most of us take for granted. Additionally, I would like to do an attorney clothing drive to donate suits to the less fortunate so that they can interview for work with confidence. I currently run my own law office and focus primarily on business litigation, mediation, and family law. Heather M. Kozlowski I would be honored to be elected as a member of the YLS Board and I need your help! I am a second year associate at the law firm of Cole, Scott, & Kissane, P.A. and a graduate of Barry Law School. This past year, I served as the Chair for Backpack project for CFAWL and helped raise over $7,000 for Rock Lake Elementary. I am very involved in the Orlando community and I am currently a Wish Granter for Make-a-Wish, a Moot Court Coach for Barry Law School and a member of the Junior League of Greater Orlando. I believe my diverse leadership roles will make me a good resource on the YLS Board. I am driven and passionate about the Central Florida legal community. Please give me the opportunity to bring my enthusiasm and leadership to the YLS Board this year. I have great ideas and just need your vote.
5 Skinner Louis I am honored to be a candidate for the OCBA YLS Executive Board. This was a great year for our organization. Last year, I was the Vice Chair for the YLS Mentoring Program Committee and Co-Chair for the YLS Social Committee. This year I served as the Chair of the Mentoring Program. Thanks to my committee, we have had an incredible year with a record number of mentors volunteering their time to law students. The Mentoring Program has quickly become one of the hallmarks for YLS, as illustrated by the positive and supportive responses we have received from the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, OCBA, and many other Bar organizations. As a member of Young Professional Advisory Council for Central Florida Partnership, I can tell you that none of our stewardship goes unnoticed. YLS is not just a strong Bar organization, it sets the mark for many other great organizations within our community to follow. With that said, I humbly ask for your vote in this election. Thank you for your participation, time, and consideration. Chanel A. Mosley I have been honored to serve on the YLS Board of Directors for the past two years, and would appreciate your support in electing me for a second term. As a YLS member and board member at large, I have worked hard to assist in the coordination and planning of several YLSsponsored events over the past several years, including the YLS Law Student Mentoring Program, Summer Law Clerks and Young Lawyers Reception, Fall Family Fun Day, and Oath of Admissions Ceremony. The Orange County YLS has received nationwide recognition amongst other bar organizations, not only for its influence on young lawyers in Orange County, but also because of the degree of professionalism and dedication to philanthropy of its members and Board, and I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization. If I am privileged to serve a second term, I will continue to carry on the positive endeavors of the YLS and advocate for the continued excellence of its service to the community. Thank you for your consideration
