Happy Holidays

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is quickly approaching as the cold crisp air announces the arrival of winter.  It’s the time of year when we all juggle work, family, travel, shopping, cooking, and visiting.  My wish for everyone is that you will take time to just stop and appreciate the moment for what it is and make memories with loved ones.  Every family has struggles and obstacles that seem to dictate conversations, but take the opportunity to set those issues aside during the holiday season and be present in the moment.  Count your blessings and reach out to those who are struggling.  Happy Holidays to you and your family and Best Wishes for a prosperous New Year!

- Melanie Hicks, CP, President of LAPSWV

On May 30, 2014, at its 10th Annual Seminar and Business Meeting in Barboursville, WV, LAPSWV honored J. Renee Clay, ACP as the LAPSWV 2014 Paralegal of the Year in recognition of her many individual outstanding achievements and contributions to LAPSWV and the paralegal profession.

Renee has been a member of LAPSWV since 2005, and served on the LAPSWV Executive Committee as Treasurer and as Second Vice-President from 2009 to 2013.  Between 2010 and 2012, Renee stepped up on two separate occasions to serve concurrently in two different positions when members of the Executive Committee resigned.  As part of her duties as treasurer and second vice president, she chaired the fund-raising committee and membership committee.  Renee also served on the following committees: seminar, audit, CLA study program, Huntington Meet & Greet, and standing rules.  She served as chair of the Nominations and Elections Committee this year.  Renee is a strong supporter of LAPSWV who has used her leadership skills to help the membership grow.
