Chapter President’s Message

Welcome to the Big Bend Chapter of PAF!  The goal of our Chapter is to provide professional growth, education, and networking opportunities to our members.

Our Board is comprised of volunteer paralegal members striving to provide quality professional development opportunities to our members and to encourage more paralegals and students to join our growing group.

We hope you will attend one of our upcoming CLE luncheons seminars to reap and learn the benefits of joining our Chapter and to get to know your fellow members and colleagues.  This year's Spring Seminar was a wonderful success and the Spring Seminar committee worked diligently to provide a professional and resourceful event. 

We encourage students and those not yet certified or registered to attend our meetings.  Several of our members are Advanced Certified Paralegals and have graduated from a paralegal program, so we’re here for any questions you may have!

My hope for our Chapter in the coming year is that we will expand our membership base, become more visible in the legal community by increasing connections, provide opportunities to interact with vendors, and give back to more than just our legal community.

As paralegals, we know the value of time, hard work, and determination.  We are constantly trying to improve and want to ensure you get the most out of your membership and our meetings.  We know it is difficult to step away from work or family and come to a lunch meeting or community activity. Let us help you make friendships, build connections with other paralegals, and achieve your career goals.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our meetings and events.
