MPA President’s Message

The changing of the guard has taken place and a new Board of Directors have been installed for the 2018-19 fiscal year. I have the honor of serving as your President during this time.

The Board has already met in person twice and have expressed several great ideas for this upcoming year. We are currently in the process of planning the annual meeting/seminar, socials and webinars in each of the districts. As those dates, times and details are finalized, we will be publishing those on the calendar of events on the website.

In addition, MPA will continue to work on assisting the Missouri Bar Paralegal Committee with re-writing the paralegal brochure, providing CLE events at Fall/Spring committee meetings, and continue to keep the committee active on other fronts.

Finally, the Board has some excellent ideas regarding possible changes to how MPA is set up and how it operates. The Board will be looking to the membership for some feedback in the near future on some topics it intends to explore. We would very much appreciate your input and thoughts as this organization is for YOU and is only as strong as its membership and we want to make sure we are providing as many benefits as possible to you.

I am thrilled to be working with the talented group of individuals on this year’s board and I am excited for this upcoming year. So, stay tuned to the website, our social media and the newsletters this year as we have big plans for MPA. As always, if you have questions, concerns or just want to give the Board your input, please contact us as we want to hear from you!
