    I can think of many reasons I love being a paralegal, but I think the one that stands out in front of all the reasons is that it is an opportunity to help others, sometimes through difficult times. - Marie Lucas, President

    Thank to everyone who came to the Holiday Party last week.

    The Board is grateful to everyone who took their noon hour to attend the party. 

    There was plenty of food from CASA and plenty of prizes that went home with our Members.

    I am currently sitting in the 2022 NFPA Policy Meeting in Cleveland, Ohio and the we (the delegates) are about to vote on the new Board of Directors of NFPA. The NFPA Board works very hard and the nominees should be proud to be nominated to the open positions. Each new Board Member will bring fresh ideas and "new blood" to the Board! Details of the results will be announced in a more formal manner in the next week.
