Your NALA Liason and I had a busy week at the NALA convention last week.  Check out some of the photos on MPA’s facebook.  

Another great luncheon on July 27, at the Capital Club downtown!  Our speaker Chad Hammons gave us a refresher course on the basics that we all need from time to time! 

Everyone is looking forward to our next luncheon which will again be held at the Hilton on County Line Road in Jackson, MS.  Our speaker will be the current District Attorney for Rankin and Madison Counties, Michael Guest.  Please help us get the word out to other members and paralegals that have not been able to attend our downtown luncheons. Standing room is available!  Just be sure and sign up by the Monday before the luncheon, August 21, they require a confirmed reservation by that date and we don’t want anyone to be left out!  

Meanwhile, enjoy your SUMMER!!

In an effort to inform and educate, MPA sponsors monthly luncheons.  Our luncheons are held at the Capital Club (Downtown Jackson), 125 South Congress Street, Jackson, MS the fourth Thursday of January, February, March, April, May, July, September, and October from 12:00 noon until 1:00.

This year we will hold two luncheons in North Jackson at the Hilton on County Line Road on June 22, 2017, and August 24, 2017, also from 12:00 noon until 1:00.

 Reservations are required. Please email secretary@msparalegals.org by 12:00 noon on the Monday before the luncheon if you plan to attend.
