As 2016 comes to an end, I would like to express my sincerest thanks and appreciation to the dedicated members of our Board of Directors who have accomplished many tasks through the year, organizing and managing seminars, board meetings, and other activities for our valued members.
To our members – thank you for attending our events, volunteering your time, remaining committed to your PAF membership that advances our profession in the legal community. We look forward to seeing you at our many events in 2017 as we work collectively to expand our footprint in Florida.
We are very proud of some major milestones reached in 2017 – including the Paralegal Association of Florida’s (PAF’s) 40th anniversary, the Big Bend chapter’s 30th anniversary, and the Treasure Coast chapter’s 25th anniversary. It is no small achievement to have been the longest and largest paralegal association in Florida and it is all due to all past and present members that help make this organization what it is. Congratulations to everyone associated with PAF who have helped PAF achieve these milestones.
No matter how small or insignificant the amount of time you think you may have to devote to helping out PAF – we continuously encourage you to become involved with your local chapter. Nominations for the 2017 officers and directors will be communicated to you in January 2017, so stay tuned for any positions where you may wish to nominate yourself or a peer PAF member.
If you have any suggestions, updates, or information on any subject that you feel might be of interest to others and you would like to share that information, or see it in the newsletter, website or upcoming media sites, please feel free to send me an email. All topics should be directly related to the paralegal profession.
I wish each of you a wonderful holiday season and a happy and prosperous New Year!
