On Thursday, October 30, 2014, the PCBA will be holding its 11th Annual Diversity Luncheon at the Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette Hotel. The Diversity Committee was implemented in 2003 to foster diversity in the membership of the PCBA in order to reflect the community served by its members with respect to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, disability and age. This year's speaker will be Justice Lisa Holder White, Appellate Judge, Fourth District. Judge White graduated magna cum laude from Lewis University in 1990 with a B.A. in Political Science. In 1993, she earned her J.D. from the University of Illinois College of Law, in Champaign-Urbana.

Judge White began her career as an Assistant State's Attorney for Macon County before going into private practice. In 2001, Judge White was sworn in as an Associate Judge in the Sixth Judicial Circuit. In 2008, she became a Circuit Judge, having been appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to fill a retirement vacancy, and in 2010, was elected to the position. On January 14, 2013, Judge White was sworn in as an Appellate Justice of the Illinois Appellate Court, Fourth District.

Judge White serves on the Illinois Supreme Court Judicial Conference Committee on Education, which is charged with planning and providing continuing judicial education for Illinois Judges. She serves as an instructor for "New Judge School" and teaches at the bi-annual Education Conference, which all Illinois state court judges are required to attend.
