    President's Message

    Welcome to the March 2016 NDA Newsletter!

    I am very pleased to announce that the Fourth Annual

    NDA Conference is officially coming to the West Coast! A

    special thank you to our Conference Chair, Michelle

    Martinez, for all her hard work scouring the west coast for

    the perfect place and the perfect price for our members.

    You’ve placed your bets and I am happy to announce that this year’s

    conference will be held in Las Vegas! Be sure to mark your calendars as the

    conference is scheduled to be held from September 25 through 27, 2016.

    In addition, I would like to congratulate our IP membership for their great

    response to the IP Survey circulated last month. We hope to use this

    feedback to create resources directly corresponding to the needs of our IP

    members.

    And lastly, do you sometimes feel like your job is a menial task in a law

    firm? Recently, I received a call from an attorney questioning how my

    department had calculated a due date, as his calculation was different.

    During our conversation it became apparent that he had not taken into

    account the judge’s individual practices before whom he was practicing. The

    new calculation, our calculation, gave him more time. He was ecstatic.

    Docketing has become a vital department in law firms. In keeping with this

    mindset, one of my co-workers has a phrase on their desk, “Every job is a

    self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with

    excellence.” The National Docketing Association, its membership and its

    resources, are here to help you in the pursuit of that excellence.

    Regards,

    JoAnn Disanti

    Editor's Note

    The call for more submissions to the NDA Newsletter went

    out last month and you will see the NDA members

    answered the call. In particular, local chapters have

    organized, held initial meetings and have set agendas for

    going forward. We know all too well the time it takes to

    recruit a local group, but to also make the time to submit

    newsletter items is much appreciated. Special thanks goes

    out to our Membership Chair, Olivia Bane, for getting the

    local chapters organized.

    As many of you have already heard, the IP Survey that was recently

    conducted was very successful. A total of 117 responses were submitted,

    which is going to be discussed during the March NDA Webinar. During the

    2015 NDA Annual Conference, a group of IP professionals was formed, and I

    recommend you join so that you get included on the latest IP information

    that is shared among them. If you would like to join, please forward your

    contact information to the members listed in the IP article within this

    newsletter. Be on the lookout for the second IP survey, which will cover

    salaries and staffing. This should be out by May. Special thanks goes out to

    the entire IP group, along with Beth Hella and Igor Olenich for setting up the

    survey. As always, none of this would get done technically without the

    assistance of John Hagel.

    This month we also have our first submission from Lisa Cadungug, who also

    serves as one of the NDA Editors. I tried to turn the table by playing editor to

    her article, but to no surprise there was nothing to correct. Speaking of Lisa,

    I have to give a shout-out to her daughter Maranda. During a recent

    conversation with Lisa, she mentioned how busy she was helping Maranda

    distribute Girl Scout cookies that she had sold. Now we all know there are the

    Girl Scouts that will just ask their parents to buy more cookies than they

    could ever imagine and then there are others that will put in the most

    extraordinary effort. My daughter was the Girl Scout that would just ask me.

    I believe we still have boxes of Girl Scout cookies around the house (and I

    would rather not say how long that has been). Maranda on the other hand

    had a different goal, which was 2,000 boxes, and that goal was achieved.

    Having had my share of cookies in order for my daughter to look like she sold

    a lot, I have never turned down an offer to enjoy a Tagalong or Samoa. I was

    more than happy to have some of those cookies transported from Oregon to

    New York. If anyone else is interested in satisfying that Tagalong, Samoa or

    Thin Mint craving please reach out to Lisa.
