10/05/2012 - President's Message Sept/Oct

According to the calendar, itís fall.  Up north the leaves are turning from green to crimson, orange, yellow and brown.  Trick or Treaters will be at the door and before we know it, turkeys will be on the table and friends and family visiting.
Itís also time for elections, not just on the national level, but of the new Board for SWFPA.  By now, all of you should have received a Call for Declaration of Candidates via an email blast.  Please consider running for the Board and contact Tracy Kelly if you are interested.

We will also need to appoint a new FAPA Representative.  After many years of dedicated service, Tammy Skonie, our current FAPA Representative, is moving on to other ventures.  On behalf of the Board and SWFPA, I wish to thank you for your dedicated service to our profession.

And more change.  In this digital day and age, and in an effort to direct members to our website, the Board has decided to discontinue the paper version of our newsletter and put all the information from the paper newsletter onto the website.  You will be able to find useful information, such as the Calendar of Events, Job Bank, Resources and Recent News at www.swfloridaparalegals.com.   There are also other resources under the Members Only section.  If you need a password, please contact our fabulous web master, Karin Turner at karin2turner@gmail.com.

And one more thing (anyone remember what TV character was always saying that?).  Our dinner meeting is Wednesday October 17, 2012.  Babette Bach from Bach & Jacobs will be speaking to us regarding Medicare and Medicaid planning.  This will be a very informative evening and Ms. Bach is very knowledgeable in this area.
