Succession Plan: I have revised the first draft and will circulate it once Cheyenne gets her thumbprint on it.

Spring is the season of hope, “holding a promise that change is a-comin’, for the better. The river will ‘flow again after it was frozen'” (Hemingway).
Spring signifies coming out of the darkness. Equinox means “equal night” of light and dark. We’ve passed that date.
“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.” “If we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome” (Anne Bradstreet).
I have A New Hope once our Annual Meeting is complete in late April. I will Strike Back. I’ll dub it “The Return of the Financial Affidavit.” You get the gist.

Spending every dollar we can in a constructive way to benefit section goals

The Paralegal Division needs a speaker on Ethics for a program in October. Did you know you can get 6 hours of credit for teaching CLE? Did you also know that asking questions in a blog post doesn’t really provide a good forum for getting answers?
