Please join Tallahassee Women Lawyers on August 11 for "The Intersection of Citizenship & Military Service" CLE presented by Elizabeth Ricci of Rambana & Ricci, PLLC. Ms. Ricci will discuss her role on the Selective Service Board, how to become a U.S. Citizen and when, who may enlist in the military, and exceptions to the residency rule for foreign-born veterans with reference to a case study. We will also present our annual Rose Deeb Kitchen Award and have our installation ceremony for the 2021-2022 Tallahassee Women Lawyers' Board of Directors.
