Walnut Street in PasadenaEvery year, the Commission approves changes to the annual Grants Program guidelines, in order to maximize the public benefit of grant funds to the community.For fiscal year 2017-2018, Pasadena Cultural Affairs Manager Rochelle Branch said staff is recommending a revision of the text under Guidelines and Applications to emphasize the importance of “public benefit” as it relates to the Pasadena community.The change in the text is meant to emphasize the need for grant applicants to articulate how their proposed program can be of benefit to the entire community, as opposed to a narrow constituency within Pasadena.The other proposed change will be to update the Resource Guide for publicizing events funded by the Annual Grants Program.Pasadena’s Annual Grants Program awards funding to eligible arts and culture organizations and individuals for proposed programming that would benefit the greater Pasadena community.

Jun 01, 2002 Advertising Updates Advertising Update: New advertising rules now effective The Florida Supreme Court issued an opinion on April 25 changing a portion of the advertising rules applicable to Florida lawyers. The major change for most Bar members is the expansion of the rules on exempt advertisements. Rule 4-7.8(a) states that certain advertisements are exempt if they contain no information other than that set forth in new Rule 4-7.2(c)(11), which provides as follows:(11) Permissible Content of Advertisements. The following information in advertisements and written communications shall be presumed not to violate the provisions of subdivision (b)(1) of this rule:* * *(B) date of admission to The Florida Bar and any other bars, current membership or positions held in The Florida Bar, its sections or committees, former membership or positions held in The Florida Bar, its sections or committees, together with dates of membership, former positions of employment held in the legal profession, together with dates the positions were held, years of experience practicing law, number of lawyers in the advertising law firm, and a listing of federal courts and jurisdictions other than Florida where the lawyer is licensed to practice;* * *(K) an illustration of the scales of justice not deceptively similar to official certification logos or The Florida Bar logo, a gavel, or traditional renditions of Lady Justice, or a photograph of the head and shoulders of the lawyer or lawyers who are members of or employed by the firm against a plain background consisting of a single solid color or a plain unadorned set of law books; andThe new rules have expanded the categories of exempt information which can be included in an advertisement without the necessity of filing the ad. The list of exempt information now includes a head and shoulders picture of the attorney, in front of a plain background, a gavel, the scales of justice, traditional rendering of Lady Justice, and reference to the attorney’s past employment and Bar service, including committee service and section memberships. Rule 4-7.2(c)(11)(B) and (K). This change should ease much of the stress of Yellow Pages advertising for Bar members, because many more Yellow Pages advertisements will be exempt from filing under new Rule 4-7.2(c)(11).In addition, Rules 4-7.2(b)(6) and 4-7.2(c)(8) have been added to the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. Rule 4-7.2(b)(6) provides that a lawyer or law firm cannot make any statement in an advertisement for legal services “that directly or impliedly indicates that the communication has received any kind of approval from The Florida Bar.” Rule 4-7.2(c)(8) requires advertising lawyers who will refer new clients to another lawyer, to state in their advertisement(s) that the prospective clients’ matters will be referred to another lawyer or law firm.Revisions to Direct E-Mail Solicitation RuleRule 4-7.6(c), which deals with computer accessed communications, has been revised to require that any direct e-mails to prospective clients must include a statement of qualifications. Such direct e-mails must also comply with most other requirements for direct mail contact with prospective clients, as set forth in Rule 4-7.4(b). Rule 4-7.7(a) was also revised, to clarify that any direct e-mails to prospective clients must be filed for review by the Standing Committee on Advertising.If you have any questions about the new rules, call the Ethics Hotline for assistance at 800-235-8619.
