  • October 16: PACO General Membership Meeting

    Our next General Membership meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 16th at the CBA offices, from 12:00 noon until 1:00 p.m. Our topic at this meeting will be about the concept of LEAN principles, a methodology for maximizing work efficiencies and how it applies to the legal office. This will be a very informative presentation providing practical LEAN applications and how to improve work processes. Our guest speaker will be Julie Swan, Legal Services Manager at American Family Insurance, and former paralegal. Kemmily Kwok, PACO's Assistant Vice-President, will share some insights as well. Application for CLE credit is being sought. Lunch will be provided for the first 15 PACO members who arrive at the CBA's offices, and we are pleased that Anderson Reporting will provide its livestreaming service for those who cannot attend in person.
