HMPA Members receive a 25% discount on their NALA Membership
On October 23, 2021, the Voting Members of the Houston Metropolitan Paralegal Association adopted the Sixth Amended Bylaws authorizing HMPA to become an Affiliate Member of the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA). In November 2021, the NALA Board ratified HMPA's Bylaws and HMPA's Affiliate Membership with NALA was approved.
NALA's goals for the education and advancement of paralegals have been aligned with HMPA's goals for many years. NALA is the leading paralegal association in the U.S. and its mission is to provide continuing education and professional development programs to all paralegals. Therefore, it was a natural transition for the growth of HMPA to join NALA. All active HMPA Members will receive 25% off a NALA Active membership fee.
NALA provides current information about the profession, continuing education programs (publications, courses and webinars), networking opportunities, professional certification programs, occupational survey reports, and publications to help paralegals excel in the workplace. NALA is a non-profit organization, 501(c)(6), representing more than 18,000 paralegals, who are individual members or members of NALA affiliated associations.
NALA is a membership organization. This means that the individual members of NALA are the leading force of NALA programs and policies. Through NALA, paralegals across the nation have come together to develop programs and standard setting codes to help them grow in the work place. The association is governed by a Board of Directors, and maintains an office and headquarters staff in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
NALA is a trade name (filed in Oklahoma in 2003) for The National Association of Legal Assistants which was formed on April 10, 1975 in Oklahoma.
