Ms. Tasha Altmann is the paralegal of the Legal Department of Missouri River Energy Services (MRES). She is responsible for providing and performing internal legal services, assists in development and implementation of contract guidelines and procedures for legal department contract review, administrative assistance, maintaining confidential information to protect MRES and member interests, mitigate risk, identifying and preserving valuable work product, facilitate the access to and integrity of key operating information, and contain costs.  She also maintains familiarity with procedural law and requirements of state regulatory and judicial bodies, assists with monitoring state regulatory activities, as well as federal developments of potential impact at the state level; and is responsible for legal research, drafting pleadings, discovery, contracts, and other legal documents as required.

In 2009, she was asked to take on the position of Records Administrator, in addition to her Paralegal duties, to which she graciously accepted.  Records Management/Information Governance was a new project for the organization in which she assisted IT inbuilding the electronic content management software to fit MRES file structure, assuring that it coincided with the MRES record retention schedule.  In this role, she was responsible for managing the organization’s records -- hard-copy and electronic -- within the Electronic Content Management system software. She also played an important role in developing record management guidelines and procedures, compliance audits, selection and implementation of additional modules and many other duties. In 2019, MRES hired a new employee to take over most of the record management duties so Ms. Altmann could continue to focus on her passion as a paralegal.  She still has the responsibility of updating the Record Retention Schedule to meet business needs.

Before joining MRES, Ms. Altmann worked as a Legal Secretary for Crew & Crew Law Firm of Sioux Falls, S.D., for four years.  She joined MRES in February 2006 as an Administrative Assistant for the Member & Public Relations Department.  In December, 2006, MRES created its Legal Department within the organization and Tasha transferred from the Member &Public Relations Department to the Legal Department shortly thereafter.  In 2008, MRES promoted her and officially changed her title to “Paralegal.”  Tasha earned her CP designation in September 2010, and her ACP in Contract Management and Business Organizations in 2021.

Ms. Altmann received an Associates of Applied Science degree in Paralegal/Legal Assistant from Nettleton Career College in 1997.

Tasha and her husband Justin have three adult sons combined.  In her free time, she enjoys traveling, concerts, summers at the lake, yard work and spending time with family and friends.
