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.
