Linda McGrath-Cruz has been selected by the Dade County Bar Association as the 2011-2012 Chair of the Florida Registered Paralegal Committee. The DCBA was incorporated in 1920 to serve the lawyers of this county, to promote the administration of justice, to enhance attorney professionalism, and to cultivate positive relationships among all members of the Bar. In 2009 the DCBA began accepting FRP members, and in April 2010 created the FRP Committee. Linda served as the 2010-2011 inaugural vice-chair.
The FRP Committee is dedicated to providing a venue for its members to interact with the legal community, while emphasizing ethics, education, professionalism and diversity. The Committee aims to broaden the experience of its members through the promotion of DCBA CLE events and informative speakers at monthly meetings, to grow membership by taking an active role in recruiting new paralegals into the Committee through public awareness, and to support the continuing education and effective utilization of paralegals.
