    In conjunction with the upcoming Paralegal Wellness Roundtable, OPA is excited to announce the 5-2-1-0 challenge!

    Social distancing measures have had many of us working from home for several months with no definite end in sight. This has been a difficult adjustment for many of us and has the potential to impact our health and wellness as well as our work productivity.

    As we continue to face these challenges and move into the holiday season, it is still important to prioritize our physical, mental, and emotional health by practicing healthy habits at home and work for you and your entire family.

    Join your fellow OPA members in the 4-week 5-2-1-0 challenge to work on improving your healthy habits. The program encourages participants to support healthy eating and an active lifestyle. It is centered around the common message of 5-2-1-0:

    • 5 or more fruits or vegetables
    • 2 hours or less of recreational screen time
    • 1 hour or more of physical activity
    • 0 sugary drinks - drink more water!

    OPA's version of this program is self guided. Each week, participants will receive an email reminding the group of the weekly goal along with some tips to help you meet the goal.

    Below is the weekly schedule:

    • 5 or more fruits or vegetables (October 19, 2020 - October 25, 2020)
    • 2 hours or less of recreational screen time (October 26, 2020 - November 1, 2020)
    • 1 hour or more of physical activity (November 1, 2020 - November 8, 2020)
    • 0 sugary drinks - drink more water! (November 9, 2020 - November 15, 2020)

    Registration will be open until October 18, 2020. Be well and stay safe!

    Presentation

    Data Storage, Video Conferences & Security, Oh My.

    In today’s climate, we all are relying on various communications software and data storage servers that allow us to connect, facilitate job tasks, and share sensitive information. Just how our conversations and data are facilitated or stored can be a bit of a mystery. What should we be looking for in security for our sensitive documents? The presentation will delve into security practices surrounding data storage and awareness of online communication tools.

    Keynote Speaker

    Jay Jenkins has worked in record retrieval for 20 years. At T-Scan Corporation, Jay developed all phases of the business:  from retrieval practices and processes and building the secure delivery of record systems, senior management and stewardship of client services, company expectations, and vision.

    Currently, Jay is VP of Client Services and Partner at T-Scan with focus on client service, client experience, and process innovation. Over the last 20 years Jay has retrieved millions of protected documents from every state in the country.  On a daily basis, Jay and his team at T-Scan work through HIPAA, HITECH, and various regional, state and corporate rules governing protected information and create the most efficient, effective secure retrieval processes available in the industry.  Throughout the year, Jay presents many local, regional and national CLEs to various professional organizations across the country. Jay lives in Everett, WA with Denise, two college kids and a hyperactive Lab named Hope. We always have Hope.

    Sponsors

    We are grateful for the many years of support from our sponsors. Your generosity enables OPA to provide high quality educational and networking opportunities to our members. We understand that 2020 has brought us unique challenges. Out of understanding for everyone's budgets that are tighter than ever, OPA has made the decision to fund the annual convention without additional support from our generous sponsors. This year, sponsors, we invite you to attend as guests.
