The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
The Paralegal Association of New Hampshire (PANH), a member of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA), has announced its new Board of Directors:
- President: Aniko Bouley, CP
- Past President: Stacey Peters
- Vice President: Jennifer Emery
- Secretary: Sharon Willier
- Treasurer: Catherine Allard
Bouley received the New Hampshire Bar Association’s 2008 Paralegal Professionalism Award. Follow this link to see PANH’s full slate of officers and committee chairpersons.I am including the following excerpt from Bouley’s President’s Message posted at PANH, because it’s a great message for all of us:
…No matter what you do, where you work, or where your journey takes you, the choice is yours to make it better. Look beyond the negatives and look for opportunities that can change you! You are the only one who can make a difference in your own life and by doing so, the rewards will follow.
Consider “paying it forward” by mentoring a paralegal student, or take the CP or ACP examination, or even better, join the Board of PANH to promote the paralegal profession and share your ideas. Whatever you decide, wherever your journey takes you, I believe that you will be pleased.
Congratulations to PANH’s new board members and committee leaders. As a member of several executive boards myself, I know that this kind of service demonstrates a serious commitment to the paralegal profession and the legal community – and also, as Bouley’s message emphasizes, that those committees need and welcome helping hands from members. Service on executive boards and committees is a wonderful way to get to know other paralegals and to contribute to your paralegal association.Sources: Nashua Telegraph; PANH
