Paralegal Spotlight - Sign up to be Profiled on the NCBA PD Blog

Paralegal Spotlight – Member Profiles

This year we hope to inspire some virtual networking by reaching out to some of our members and profiling them for our monthly Paralegal Spotlight blog publication. This will be your chance to share a little about your personal background and your professional life. We look forward to hearing more about your personal and professional goals, technology tips, interests, great accomplishments, volunteer work, and the like. Don’t be shy. Our Division members have a wonderful variety of talents, skills, and interests and we look forward to hearing from you!


Thank you for taking the time to complete our member profile questionnaire. We look forward to learning more about you and sharing your experiences and interests with the NCBA PD membership.

Please do not forget to include a “relaxed” photo. It does not have to be a headshot as long as you are the only one in the photo.

There will be one member profile monthly. Responses to the questions below are due on the first of the month that you select to be highlighted. For example, if you would like to be profiled in February 2019, your responses and photograph would be due on February 1, 2019. Please send your questions and responses to [email protected]

Please answer all of the following:

  1. Name, Position Title and/or major duties:

  2. Firm or Corporation/Location:

  3. Brief background of education, certification, etc.?

  4. What's one thing you’d like to see the NCBA PD do/accomplish in the short term for its membership?
