Now it’s moving into summer, which means a busy time for all of us! As I was going through my calendar for the next few months, I realize I only have one or two free weekends upcoming. All I can do is wonder how that happened! I think I may have to schedule a vacation away from my vacations and appointments.
As you know, KCPA holds its annual Installation of Officers and Recognition luncheon in June. We hope you’ll join us on June 11, 2013 where we will introduce our 2013-2014 Board of Directors, Paralegal of the Year, Outstanding Member, and Jeannie D. Conner Memorial Scholarship recipient as well as recognize our sustaining members who help support us throughout the year. It will be at 12:00 p.m. at the Petroleum Club. Please see the announcement for further information.
June also brings the CAPA Educational Conference. This is CAPA’s 25th Annual Educational Conference, and it’s being held in Los Angeles, California on June 22, 2013. It should be an event not to miss! Please visit our website for further information. If you’re interested in purchasing opportunity drawing tickets for items available at the conference, please contact any of your board members before the conference. There is a MCLE webinar up for grabs worth approximately $700! You do not need to be present to win.
Also, mark your calendars for July’s Annual Ethics Members Luncheon! The Luncheon will be held at Klein, DeNatale, Goldner on July 13, 2013 and it is free to members with one hour of Ethics MCLE credit ($15 for non-members and attorneys).
The KCPA Board will be holding its annual retreat in July; if you have any items that you believe should be discussed by the board, please let me know. We’re here to serve you and you input is valuable to the association.
As a reminder, the court clerk’s office hours are being reduced effective June 10, 2013. Counters and telephone services will be available from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to Noon on Fridays. The Kern River Branch in Lake Isabella will be closed. Additionally, court reporter services will be discontinued for family law and civil matters (with exception). [Further information regarding court reports should be posted by the court by June 1, 2013, so watch for further information.] Lastly, remember to use the Attorney Motions Reservation System if you have a fast track civil case before you send your papers to court!
As this leads you into the summer, I hope you all have a relaxing and fun summer planned ahead of you! (I know I’m getting a head start on Memorial Day weekend. )
