August President’s Message

The Kern County Paralegal Association held its Installation of Officers and Awards Luncheon at The Petroleum Club on June 8th. At the luncheon, the Association thanked its Sustaining Members and its outgoing Board, swore in the incoming board, and presented the Jeannie D. Conner Memorial Scholarship and the Paralegal of the Year award.

KCPA was delighted to honor Erica Bjornstad with the Paralegal of the Year award. The Jeannie D. Conner Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Sissy Rucker. This scholarship assists with continuing legal education expenses.

I am proud to announce KCPA’s 2017-2018 Board of Directors:

     President: Karen A. Clemans, CBA

     Vice President: Cindy Oliver

     Secretary: Whitney Radcliff

     Treasurer/Webmaster: Troy Thompson

     Newsletter: Kayleen Ungar, CP, CAS

     Membership Services: Sissy Rucker

     Community Affairs: Danielle Rodrigues

     CAPA Representative: Erica Bjornstad

     CAPA Representative: Kelly Grijalva

     Student Members: Grecia Hernandez and Jamie Thompson

     Public Information Officer: vacant

     Programs: vacant

I am looking forward to our August 10th membership appreciation luncheon to be held at the Klein, DeNatale, Goldner law firm, one of our KCPA sustaining members. T. Scott Belden will present on “Ethics and the Use of Social Media on the Cloud.” This presentation will be at no charge for all members who have submitted their membership application and it has been accepted by the date of the meeting. For those who would like to attend and are not members the cost will be $30.00.

The purpose and goals of KCPA are to establish and maintain the high standards of the paralegal profession, to provide a gathering place for thoughts and ideas, and to provide a forum for continuing legal education. KCPA offers quality continuing legal education at nine lunch meetings per year, and organizes the annual Holiday Luncheon with KCBA. Established in 1987, KCPA this year celebrates serving the Kern County community for 30 years.
