SUMMER is HERE!  Image result for summertime funFor some of us it is a slower pace, for others our schedules are jammed with many activities and obligations in addition to our busy work schedules.  

MPA is gearing up for the NALA Convention July 11-13 in St. Louis, Missouri.  Our NALA representative, Zenda Hefner, is prepared and ready to represent Mississippi with pride!  If you are interested in learning more about the conference go to: https://www.nala.org/conferences/nala-conference-expo

We are also looking forward to everyone joining us for this month’s Luncheon on Thursday, June 28, 2018.  Our speaker will be Mitzi Dease Paige, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Southern District of Mississippi.  Her topic will be “An Overview of the United States Attorney’s Office”  Make plans to join us and bring your questions!

Again, in an effort to expand the benefits of MPA, we need your input! As most of you know, we are working on updating our website to make it more interactive. Give us your input, announcements, and opinions on how to improve not only our website but MPA.  We NEED your help!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the luncheon!  Remember, take a little time to enjoy your Summer! 

Betty Todd, CP MPA  President                                                                                                                                                                               

Please remember: 

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.  

 “Time flies.  It’s up to you to be the navigator.”   Robert Orben



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, June, July, August, September, and October 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.
