Hello and Happy New Year!  The start of a new year brings hope and determination.  For MPA we are looking forward to many new challenges and victories this year.

I have hope that MPA provides not only educational opportunities but a sense of community to all its members.  I am determined to do everything possible to open doors and minds to the possibilities our profession offers.

To accomplish this, we must all commit to doing our part to contribute to our profession and to our communities. Would you join me in a commitment to helping MPA bring recognition to our Members, our Profession, and our State?

MPA is OUR organization.  MPA represents OUR profession in Mississippi. MPA represents all OUR members.

Let’s make 2017 a year for us all to celebrate success!

Decide – Commit – Succeed

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.
