“You make a living by what you get, you make a life by what you give.”
To be described by a famous Winston Churchill quote is quite an honor but that’s exactly what members of the Los Angeles Paralegal Association (LAPA) did when they awarded Michelle Tabb, ACP the association’s 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Michelle, right with her congratulatory flowers, was honored at LAPA’s 40th Annual October Conference. Members of LAPA agree that she represents all that is best in LAPA and has been very giving to the Association.
LAPA is dedicated to developing, strengthening, and advancing the paralegal profession. LAPA was formed in 1972 by local paralegals in response to the growing need for an organized professional association throughout the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. LAPA was incorporated in 1977 as a California non-profit corporation and is governed by an Executive Committee and a Board of Directors.
LAPA provides networking opportunities, continuing legal educational programs, and pro bono activities for paralegals and other members of the legal community. LAPA builds communication bridges with other paralegal associations and maintains a mutually beneficial working relationship with local and state bar associations, educational institutions, and businesses serving the legal community. LAPA also is an active participant in and an advocate of the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) and the California Alliance of Paralegal Associations (CAPA).
