ABOUT US – COMMITTEES

 

The common thread connecting all activities and services offered to the members of PAP is that they are all organized, supported and operated by and through PAP's committee system. The membership application and renewal process, the quarterly luncheons, the quarterly newsletter and the Job Bank services are some of the activities and services our members organize. PAP's Committees hold monthly lunchtime meetings and are involved in organizing, establishing and creating numerous events and activities throughout the year. Involvement in one Committee requires a time commitment of one hour per month. PAP encourages and welcomes all members to get involved. Volunteering time enables members to experience the satisfaction of contributing to their professional association. Committee participation gives PAP members the opportunity to network with other area paralegals. Furthermore, working on various Committees contributes to the growth and professionalism of the paralegal field. The following is a brief summary of each Committee's primary objectives:

Education Committee

The primary task of the Education Committee is to organize the annual Education Conference, which is generally held in the fall. The conference offers a luncheon with a keynote speaker and a variety of educational seminars. This Committee also oversees legal specialty sections/subcommittees in the following areas:

   1. Bankruptcy
   2. Employee Benefits
   3. Estates and Trusts
   4. Intellectual Property
   5. Litigation
   6. Immigration
   7. Medical/Legal Issues
   8. Family Law

The Association is open to the formation of other specialty sections/subcommittees proposed for other practice areas. These specialty sections/subcommittees hold "brown bag lunches" on a regular basis to allow paralegals to network, share concerns and challenges, and exchange ideas and best practices.
