Chapter President’s Message

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk scheduled for October 21st, has been rescheduled for Sunday December 9th.  Are you planning on walking with us? At least, stop by and say hi to show your support as we save second base. Join, donate, and see details at http://main.acsevents.org/goto/bustymover. The Chapter will match total donations from members, up to $250. Let’s exceed our goal!
Do you want a team shirt?  Email me or Melissa the qty and sizes needed. She is personally designing and making them at cost.

The shirts will be unveiled at the Holiday Social on December 8th.. Join us!

With a blink of an eye, the year has flown by! Behind the scenes at the Archives, we saw original and preserved Florida treasures, across the street, we sat in the Justices’ chairs, and we discovered our True Colors at PAF’s Spring Seminar. Hosted and planned by our chapter, the seminar show cased our Capital City, was a little unorthodox, and was a great success! This year, members were able to access Tickets at Work, the iMembers database, and e-vote for the first time!

Over lunch, we’ve learned about a variety of topics like cyber fraud, LGBTQ inequality, sexual harassment, estate planning/ probate, and personal financial planning to name a few. We contributed to charities near and dear to our hearts such as Refuge House, Guardian ad Litem, American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society!

We’ve met several new members and had a couple join the chapter board to help us keep moving forward. Ready or not, here comes 2019! Let’s Make Strides, together.


See you soon,

Asha Maharaj-Lucas, Interim President
Big Bend Chapter of Paralegal Association of Florida, Inc.
