Cathy ZackeryThis year NALS held its third year of NALS Leadership Appreciation Day. This day is not only our association anniversary, but is also reserved to recognize all current leadership and volunteers that make NALS function at its highest quality.

Volunteers are at the heart of NALS' work and success!

Because of the contributions of volunteers' time, talent, and expertise, NALS can provide the essential education and tools, a vibrant online community, and exceptional experiences and relationships that we all value so highly. 

Each year over 150 volunteers step into various roles on the national,  state, and local chapter platforms to fulfill and continue the mission of NALS. 
In addition to having this event annually, NALS Board of Directors, along with NALS Resource Center, have chosen a 'Volunteer of the Year.' From our national pool of volunteers and leadership, one person that exemplifies the exact definition of character, dependability, and leadership will be chosen and honored with this award.

For 2019 that person is Cathy Zackery, CLP, from Michigan.

Cathy Zackery, CLP,  is currently a Legal Assistant at Levine & Levine in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  Cathy has extensive experience in family law.  Cathy was recently recognized by her employer for her successful election to the NALS of Michigan Board of Directors as the Vice President of  Membership and Marketing. 

NALS shares the same sentiments expressed from the May 3 press release. "Cathy is a trusted and highly-respected colleague on our team," said Levine & Levine Partner Randall Levine. "We are proud and delighted to see her grow into a leadership position within the Association for Legal Professionals."

Cathy has been an active NALS member since November 2013. She has shown the NALS Board of Directors and NALS Virtual Resource Center Staff her desire to make NALS the best it can be. Since becoming a member, she has taken advantage of the many opportunities NALS has provided for personal and professional development. She has earned her Certified Legal Professional (CLP) certification in May 2017, dedicated her time to the tri-level organization's efforts and strategies, and brings ideas and skills that promote growth and conversation. 

As a national volunteer, Cathy is dedicating her time toward the success of other legal professionals and to the leadership of NALS. She is currently the Co-Chair of the Manuals Development & Editing Committee, Co-Chair of the Leadership Identification Committee, and committee member of the Education Outreach Task Force. 

She also freely gives efforts to her roles on the state and local levels. She held the title of President of her local chapter, NALS of Greater Kalamazoo, from 2016-2018. She currently holds the role of Vice President of Membership and Marketing in her state organization. 

Cathy will be presented her award by Laleise Curtiss, NALS Board of Directors Secretary.
