The Fireflies are all back in the office after a very busy couple weeks of conferences. Check out where we’ve been!
Kicking things off was the ALA – Assocation of Legal Administrators Annual Conference, where Firefly’s Stephanie Irvine and Jennifer Dlugolecki attended and exhibited. As exhibitors, we enjoyed excellent networking opportunities and the education sessions. We were able to get out and we actually live tweeted during one of the education sessions led by Kerry Boll! The keynote from Andres Tapia did a great job at getting everyone excited for the rest of the conference. Tuesdays welcoming reception provided good food, entertainment, and the opportunity to meet ALA members from other regions. It was a lot of fun.
Check out some of the pictures from the conference!
After the ALA Annual Conference, Firefly’s Jennifer Dlugolecki attended the Legal League 100 Servicer Summit, which took place at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, Texas on April 18. Firefly Legal sponsored the event, which was geared at keeping industry professionals informed on the ever-changing rules and regulations. Check out the Firefly cocktails that were enjoyed during the evening reception!
While we were at the ALA Annual Conference and Legal League 100 Servicer’s Summit, Firefly’s Randy Mucha, Civil Process Supervisor, attended the NAPPS conference, which is a conference held by the National Association of Professional Process Servers that was held in Phoenix, AZ this year. This conference provided a great opportunity for Firefly to network with other process servers, but more importantly, to stay abreast of all the changes in the industry. Here’s a photo from the event when at the NAPPS conference, ILAPPS was given some recognition!
On Monday, April 22, 2013, Jennifer Dlugolecki attended a fundraiser for State Representative Mike Zalewski. Attendees included Lou Freedman, Bob Markoff, Fred Blitt, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel. Representative Zalewski is committed to serving Illinois and specifically the southwest suburbs, and has worked on legislation in the collection industry.
Jennifer Dlugolecki was also busy attending the Mercy Housing’s Live In Hope Breakfast, a non-profit organization that Firefly Legal sponsors. The separkers included Tom O’Brien, Leonard Moscicke, Tomeka Spring, Sister Margaret Johnson, Bill Godlsmith, and Cindy Hoiller. Together, the attendees produced $21,650 in pledges and gifts. Mercy Housing helps to provide affordable housing to low-income families, seniors, and people with special needs. Firefly was a sponsor at this breakfast, which took place Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013 at Maggiano’s in Chicago.
