Andrew M. Dector, a shareholder with Shapiro, Blasi, Wasserman & Hermann, P.A., was installed as the President-Elect of the South Palm Beach County Bar Association at the annual gala held at Woodfield Country Club.
The South Palm Beach County Bar Association is a Florida not for profit voluntary bar association established to foster a shared commitment to excellence in the law, while enhancing the skills of its members through education, networking and community outreach. More than 500 members serve together as the voice of the South Palm Beach County legal community to other organizations, governmental entities and the public at large.
“I look forward to continuing my work with the South Palm Beach County Bar Association and to serving the many dedicated lawyers and other members that have made this organization a powerful force in our county,” said Dector.
Dector, who was previously the treasurer of the Association, has been on the board for the past ten years.
