Welcome to the Michiana Paralegal Association
Michiana Paralegal Association ("MPA") was established in September 1989. As an association of dedicated professionals, MPA has matured into a strong paralegal association with members from every part of northwest Indiana and southwest Michigan, a geographic area known as "Michiana." In addition to our affiliation with the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA), we are a member of the Alliance of Indiana Paralegal Associations.
A WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT
By now, we are all feeling a bit over-whelmed with the constant changes and updates regarding the COVID-19 crisis. We share in the frustrations with this ever-changing situation and the interruptions it has caused to our daily lives. However, we also share in the necessity for the health, safety and well-being of our members, their families and the community we serve as a whole.
With the Statewide orders still in place limiting gatherings and the utmost importance for the practice of social distancing, the April Member's Meeting is canceled at this time. We do hope to be able to reschedule both the March and April meetings and will keep you apprised when those events are re-calendared. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented and difficult time.
Further, it is our hope that everyone finds encouragement to stay positive and practice good habits to remain healthy and well in body, mind and spirit. As always, if you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or any member of the MPA Board.
Thank you and be well!
Brandy L. Henderson, President
