President’s Message

Hello PAF Members!

There is exciting news to share with you!

In keeping with PAF’s goals of providing our members with greater value and benefits I wanted to share some changes!  Here’s our plan and we are excited to pass along this news!

  Management Changes:

  The Board has approved the hiring of an Executive Director in lieu of a management company to assist our organization.  I am thrilled to announce that Kaila Glaros, ACP   (outgoing President of PAF Pinellas Chapter) has joined us effective November 1, 2018.  Kaila has been a part of this organization for a long time and has a keen understanding of the depths and breadth of what PAF is all about.  She has some awesome ideas for growth!  The transition over the next 60 days will put us in an exciting position to start our new calendar year with a bang! 

   Who is Kaila Glaros? Kaila is an Adjunct Professor at St. Petersburg College teaching Law Office Management. She is also a member of the Continuing Education Committee for the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) and a contributing member to NALA’s magazine, Facts & Findings.

How Will You Be Affected By This Change?

Our members shouldn’t be affected at all.  We have worked hard on our end to make this a seamless transition.  You will just need to focus on our new change of address and contact information listed on this website effective immediately.  .

Long term, you will see great strides in improving PAF’s value for its members.  We are looking into improved operating processes at the state and chapter levels including (just to name a few):

· E-commerce
· Webinars (finally!)
· Improved Florida Certified Paralegal (FCP) Exam Program
· Stronger Marketing with Better Branding
· Stronger Business Development
· Membership Growth in all Markets
· Membership Management & Website Improvements
· More Membership Benefits
· Centralized Seminar Location
· Improved Communications with Members

These are not lofty dreams.  These are actual projects in the works so stay tuned for future announcements!  From a cost standpoint, PAF is interested in making sure your dollars work for you! 

Where Do We Go From Here?

Buckle up and hang on for the ride!  We want to start our new calendar year with a fresh new beginning!  We are looking for help so come on board and join us.  Email us at our new contact info and help take PAF to a new level! 

Until next time . . .
