October 2007 Greetings Chris,

Here's what they're saying about the conference: 

"Thanks to Nancy Newlin, all of the members and board members who participated in the planning of the Conference. It was an awesome time of learning and networking with other LDA's!"
                --Ann Malane

"It was a wonderful conference that included many helpful topics and informative classes. The instructors were awesome! I thoroughly enjoyed Commissioner Vogel. He was a wealth of information as well as jokes to go along with that information. Judge Duncan was a joy to listen to. I could hardly wait to get back to my office and order his books. Attorneys Michael McGuire and Terri McCracken brought so much to this year's conference. I sincerely hope they will both be back again next year. Carl Knoll's Marketing class was both insightful as well as entertaining. It was a great time to network with other LDA's. It was a great time! Thank you all."
            ---Debra Hollis

"For all the really terrific knowledge I gain from the classes and speakers, where I continue to gain the most inspiration is from sitting at the lunch tables and socializing through out the conference time with other LDAs. Their exchange of insight and experience to me is priceless. If you didn't attend this year, be sure to put aside investment money in your budget for next year. I am never disappointed. Thanks again to our CALDA officers and Board for all their hard work!"
           ---Diana Runnion

Tina Sandoval Elected New President at 20th Annual Conference in Sacramento

Tina Sandoval, president of the Central Valley Chapter of the California Association of Legal Document Assistants and owner of Sandoval Affordable Business Services, was elected President for 2008 at the annual conference held last September 14-16 at the Sacramento Convention Center.


Sandoval has been a member of CALDA since 2004. Prior to her appointment as President, Sandoval served on the board as Education Chair.


“I am very excited to be the new leader of an organization whose members continue to provide personalized and affordable alternatives to the consumer,” said Sandoval. “I am grateful for the tremendous support from the board and our members, and I am looking forward to continuing to implement CALDA’s goals and objectives during my term as president.”


Sandoval said CALDA’s main goals for the coming year include continuing to bridge the gap between the court system and LDAs. Plans are also already under way for the next annual conference, set for October 17-19, 2008 in Fresno.
