Recently, the Arizona Paralegal Association (APA) announced the 2018-19 members of its board of directors, including Renaud Cook Drury Mesaros’ Teresa George. There are 10 members on the board, and Teresa will serve as Membership Chair.
Teresa is a National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) certified paralegal with nearly six years of experience — 1½ at RCDM. Currently, her practice focuses on transportation law, but she also has experience in medical malpractice defense, insurance defense, election law, government contract cases and multi-jurisdictional matters.
In addition to her new role with the APA, Teresa has previously served on the Board of Women in eDiscovery in Phoenix, helping the chapter to restart operations after a dormant period.
The APA was founded in 1977 and is a nonprofit professional corporation for paralegals. The APA became an affiliate association of NALA in 1988. The members are paralegals employed by Arizona law firms, freelance paralegals, paralegals employed in corporations or government agencies, students enrolled in paralegal training programs, and other persons interested in supporting the APA and the paralegal profession.
The APA’s Board of Directors is elected each May at the annual business meeting and legal seminar. Board officers serve a one-year term from June to May, with the exception of the Treasurer, who serves a two-year term.
