Fall is bringing changes to Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta. First, we have a recent addition to our staff – our new part-time paralegal, Laura Moore. We want to thank the Corporate Counsel Section of the State Bar for providing the initial funding for the position. You can find out more about Laura, including her favorite football team, in the article below.
In November, Frank Landgraff will pass the reins as PBPA Board Chair to Rick McMurtry of Turner Broadcasting System. In addition to being a longstanding PBPA Board Member, Rick is also a dedicated pro bono lawyer. He was recently profiled as August Volunteer Attorney of the Month on georgiaadvocates.org. You can see his profile here.
Finally, we will soon say goodbye to Andrea Pendleton, our Manager of Nonprofit Relations, who will be joining the staff of the YMCA of Metro Atlanta as Campaign Manager on October 15. Andrea has been with PBPA for over 5 years and she will be sorely missed, especially by me.
