MEMBER DIRECTORY & CALENDAR – CONTEST WINNER – RENEWAL DEADLINE – KBA EXPO
Have you ever met someone at a social and you can’t recall their name, but you remember who they work for? Have you ever been stumped and needed to reach out to another paralegal who works in the same area of practice to ask a question? Students, have you ever had questions about working in a particular type of law practice or a particular firm? Now you can reach out to our membership and get your questions answered!
I am very pleased to announce that you may now search our membership directory by member first name, member last name, type of law practiced, and employer/law firm. The Member Directory link is located under both Members tabs. You must be logged into the website to search the member directory.
The search results for our Member Directory are only as good as our database. Please make sure that your information is up-to-date. You may update your profile on the My Account page.
We now have a working calendar on the website. All the Mobile Meals dates have been added. I will keep adding monthly CLE dates as information become available. If you click on the CLE date for more details, you will find the Zoom link for that meeting date and you can download the calendar item for either Google calendar or Outlook. The calendar can be found by scrolling down the home page or under the Events tab.
