Welcome to The Philadelphia Association of Paralegals!
Dear PAP Members:
As we embark on this journey of working from home or working remotely due to uncharted waters known as the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), I want you to know that PAP’s leadership is monitoring developments in this regard.
PAP emails continue to be monitored and will be addressed as quickly as possible. I ask for your patience in these challenging times.
What we all can do to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19 is to be vigilant in following the recommendations and guidelines of The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at http://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.
I wish you and your family good health and stay safe.
Lyndora Patterson Tiller, President
