Win a Free iPad!

PACO is sponsoring a contest to win a full-size Apple iPad - all you have to do is attend as many PACO general membership meetings as you can (held once a month). Every time you attend a meeting your name will go into a hat and in June (end of PACO year), we will draw a name for the winner! For example, if you attend six meetings during the PACO year, your name will go into the hat six times, which will give you six chances at winning the iPad! *Please note that this contest is only for PACO members, this does NOT include sustaining members or executive board members. Questions? Contact programs@pacoparalegals.org.
