Welcome to the Charleston Association of Legal Assistants (CALA)! My name is Barbara Carter, and I am so honored to be your President for the next two years. I follow many dedicated paralegals, and I promise to continue their hard work and dedication.
I would like to welcome the new executive board! We are all so privileged to represent this organization. This is an exciting year especially because the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) is having their annual convention right here in Charleston July 23-25, 2014! We are hoping to make this event extra special because it is being held in our own beautiful city!
CALA strives to make a difference and encourage those in our field through continuing legal education and community outreach. We offer CLE credits throughout the year, in accordance with NALA, at our monthly meetings and at our annual seminar. I encourage you to attend as many meetings as possible. This is a great opportunity to network with other professionals in your field. We address ethics and touch on all types of law at these meetings. Our meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month. Please take a look at our Calendar of Events for specific dates and locations.
