ALL MPA Members,


The board is excited and looking forward to our Spring Seminar next week.  If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so before noon April 24, 2018.  If you are unable to attend the Seminar, don’t forget we have our April luncheon next Thursday also.   Our Speakers for the Seminar will be:


8:15 a.m.  Nick Norris, Esq. (Partner, Watson & Norris, PLLC)

                    “Employment Law Issues Regarding Paralegals”


9:30 a.m.   Silas W. McCharen, Esq. (Director, Daniel Coker Horton & Bell, P.A.)

                     “Unemployment Compensation”


10:45 a.m.   Nakia McLaurin, Victim Advocate (Crime Victim Compensation

                    Division, Bureau of Victim Assistance, Office of the Attorney General)

                        “Helping Victims and Their Families With Economic Recovery”


12:00 p.m.    Justice Dawn H. Beam (Mississippi Supreme Court)

                        “Lean In”


 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. 


Looking forward to seeing everyone next Thursday!

And don’t forget MPA Stewpot Day is Friday, April 27, 2018!
