MPA President’s Message

Welcome to the Missouri Paralegal Association Website. We are glad to have you. Take some time and look around. I think you will find that we have so much to offer.

It is a privilege and an honor to serve as President for the 2017-18 term. Our membership makes my job much easier and certainly, they make it a joy to serve. The Missouri Paralegal Association strives to advance our profession and in that vein, we are currently working very hard on two projects.

First, we are assisting others on the MOBAR Paralegal Committee with re-writing the Missouri Bar Association’s brochure on utilizing Paralegals. A update of the original brochure was long overdue. Because our profession continues to change and grow, we find that the message must change and grow with it. We think you’ll find the final version of the new brochure a great illustration of where Missouri paralegals are and where we are heading.

Secondly, we are already working on planning next year’s annual seminar If you haven’t had an opportunity to attend yet, I really encourage you to put this seminar on your 2018 list of professional events. Not only is it extremely educational, but you are sure to meet some wonderful, dynamic and very intelligent professionals with the combined purpose of growing our profession and providing accessible legal services to Missourians.

Thank you for stopping by I hope you will consider joining this prestigious organization. I know you will find it just as rewarding as I have. I guarantee you’re going to meet some like-minded individuals who face the same professional struggles and gain the same rewards. We’ll keep you updated on where this profession is and where we believe it is going. This profession is moving forward every day and the future holds great things!
