Message from Dorothy Kirk, Chair of the GCBA Paralegal Section Executive Committee
I am honored to serve as the 2017 Chair of the Gate City Bar Association Paralegal Section Executive Committee. Having been involved with GCBA Paralegal Section in various leadership roles and board positions over the past several years, I am excited to take on this new responsibility. My fellow Board members and I anticipate leading the organization in continuing the long standing traditions of CLE’s, student scholarships, job search and professional networking.
As Chair, my focus will be to foster the professional development of paralegals and maintain a high order of ethical and professional standards, while mentoring those aspiring to become paralegals. As the paralegal profession continues to change, we must take an active part in shaping that change. I am excited to work with our members and the legal community to carry out the association’s mission statement and to support the effective utilization of paralegals.
