We are a professional organization dedicated to the paralegal profession. We support paralegal/legal assistants by promoting professional development, education, and the Certified Legal Assistants (“CLA”), Certified Paralegal (“CP”) and Advanced Certified Paralegal (“ACP”) examinations. Please contact us concerning membership or for additional information about MPA.
Time for SCHOOL….already? It seems we all are experiencing a time crunch! Never enough hours in the day or days in a month to accomplish all we intend. With such little time it makes taking a lunch hour to join us for MPA’s monthly luncheon one of the easier and hopefully enjoyable things you can do. Our luncheons at the Capital Club are not only to educate but to relax and enjoy lunch while catching up with old friends and colleagues.
Our August luncheon is one that you may want to invite your boss and others to join. Our speaker will be the Honorable Rhesa Barksdale, Judge for the United States 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. His topic will be “An Overview of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals and the Oral Argument Process.”
Please make plans to join us and bring a guest, I look forward to seeing you!
Betty Todd, CP MPA President
In an effort to ensure all members enjoy our luncheons, please be sure and make a reservation by the deadline, noon on the Tuesday before the luncheon. Previously we have had a number of guest/members that have attended without confirming a reservation. While we are happy and excited to have a room full, we just need to be considerate of the members/guest that did make reservations for seating. The Capital Club prepares the seating for the number of reservations made. Should we have more attend than we have reservations, they are left standing or sitting outside the room. Beginning April 26, 2018, we will check the reservation list for your name when you arrive. I know we all want everyone to have their seat to enjoy a good meal and a good speaker. Therefore, please help us by encouraging others to confirm their reservation by noon on Tuesdays with the MPA Secretary.
