NALS News and Updates for October 2017
Tara Jean Brown, PP, PLS, of Greenville, South Carolina, has been a very active and dedicated member of NALS since 2004.  Her local chapter is the Legal Staff Professionals of Greenville (LSPG).  She has served in every office on the local and state level and in  some offices many times. 

Local chapters and state associations are faced with the need for increased community awareness.  NALS of Greater Kalamazoo's President, Cathy A. Zackery, CLP, recently contacted Lydia Goodner at the NALS Resource Center expressing an interest in creating a social media chair for NALS of Michigan.   Their idea was to not only increase community awareness, but also to share and discuss content on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and a blog of articles.

Dates seem to be confusing for people. When you use a complete date (month, day, and year), you should use a comma before AND after the year.

I've been in the legal employment force for a few years now. My previous position as a data processor/typist was all about production and speed and it is a little different now that I'm a legal assistant.  I want so much to do my job fast but I'm having to go back and correct little things almost daily.
