MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on March 29, 2013

Okay, the words “voting” and “bylaws” do not elicit excitement.  However, being a Paralegal is exciting.  Even better is that Texas Paralegals have the most professional and supportive association in the Paralegal Division.  So the Paralegal Division is asking for some of that excitement from their very own members. 

It is time for an election, but it is also time to vote on a bylaw change.  Voting on a bylaw change is not nearly as boring as sending in your proxy to your mutual fund.  Your understanding of the proposed bylaw change, and your ultimate vote helps to direct the Paralegal Division in the way the members want it to be directed. 

This year, there is a proposed change to Article VI of the Bylaws.  Article VI defines, in part, the location of the Paralegal Division’s annual meeting.  So, even if this is not of the utmost important to you, it may be to a lot of other people.  That means your thoughts through your vote are important.

Equally and more important, is your time and consideration in voting for District Directors of the Division.  The Division has some very hard working and dedicated paralegals that volunteer their time and efforts so that the profession and your career can grow.

Read below for this year’s election and Bylaw amendment, and DON’T FORGET TO VOTE:
