The Paralegal Committee is giving away MONEY! Well, not exactly money, but close! One lucky member will win a $25 Visa gift card in June. The winner will be announced in the June newsletter (to be released around the third week of the month.) I am guessing you are immediately thinking, “so, what’s the catch?” There really isn’t a “catch” so to speak, but in order to have your name go in the hopper for the drawing we ask that you submit an article, poem, public service announcement, funny story, anything for our newsletter, Paralegals Tip the Balance.
I can almost hear you thinking, “I’m not a good writer,” or “I am not very creative,” or “I don’t have time to do an article.” Don’t let any of those negative thoughts stop you as we are here to help! If you have any desire whatsoever to participate, please let us know and we will work with you on the submission. If you have an idea – we can help you get it into words. If you don’t have an idea, but would really like to participate – let us know and we can help you with suggestions. We are willing to help with whatever you need to get your submission ready. The bonus (in addition to the chance to win $25) is that you will be able to add a "publications" section to your resume.
While it is possible that your submission may not be go into the newsletter until September or December (depending on content), the deadline for submissions to be in the drawing is June 1, 2017. All submissions should go to Kara Sikorski with a copy to Lottie Wathen and DeeAnn Cassady.
If you really want to tip the odds in your favor, submit more than one!
1 submission = 1 entry
2 submissions = 2 entries
And so on....
We can’t wait to hear from you!
