Philadelphia Paralegal Chosen as Outstanding Local Leader

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations, Inc. (NFPA) chose Renee Mazzeo as the organization’s 2008 Outstanding Local Leader. The Outstanding Local Leader award is given to an individual who has promoted interest and participation in the activities of his/her local association and has been recognized by the legal community as a professional dedicated to the advancement of the legal profession.

Ms. Mazzeo has been a member of the Philadelphia Association of Paralegals (“PAP”) since 2000. She started out helping the Public Relations/Marketing Committee (PRMC). PRMC provides a liaison to the Philadelphia Bar Association, and presents yearly achievement awards to PAP members. Renee also assisted with planning for PAP’s exhibition booths at the Pennsylvania Governor’s Conference for Women, an event held in Philadelphia in 2005 and 2007. Ms. Mazzeo was awarded with the Leadership Award in 2004 for her work in 2003 with PRMC.

In 2003, Ms. Mazzeo was also a key participant in planning of the Association’s 30th Anniversary celebration. Working with the Professional Development Committee, she has also been involved in selecting the winner for the Association’s Annual Scholarship, given in memory of past President Joan Weldon. Ms. Mazzeo also takes responsibility for the Association’s Legalmen Project. She is currently serving on the 2010 NFPA Convention Committee. As a Board member, her dedication to the profession and association shows in her never-ending willingness to help, assist and volunteer. Even with her busy schedule, she still finds time to attend national and local legal functions to promote the profession and the Association.
