CCPA Proudly Hosts NFPA® Region IV Spring 2019 Meeting

CCPA was proud to host the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA®) Region IV Spring Meeting on Saturday, April 27, 2019 (held at the Microtel Inn & Suites Conference Center, West Chester, PA).

The mission of the NFPA® is to promote a global presence for the paralegal profession and leadership in the community, and to advance the paralegal profession. Divided into five Regions, Region IV is comprised of membership associations from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Southern New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. At the meeting, delegates from across the Region joined together in an important gathering to discuss the state of the paralegal profession at the local and national levels, build and strengthen professional bonds, and provide a platorm for brainstorming, troubleshooting, and solutions for the betterment of our local associations and members.

Delegates also participated in a one-hour CLE presentation by a good friend to CCPA, Mark Evangelista, JD, of Konica-Minolta. His presentation, entitled "Awareness of Practical Threats to Confidentiality," was an engaging discussion on the insidious and common threats to maintaining confidential client information and the potential ethical considerations involved.

We very much enjoyed seeing and re-connecting with our good friends from Region IV.



At the annual CCPA Holiday Party (held at Duling Kurtz Restaurant in Exton, PA on December 6, 2018), CCPA awarded the 2019 Paralegal Studies Scholarship to Christopher Hinckley. Chris joined us for the dinner with his guest

CCPA wishes Chris all the best.


"Encore! 2018" Fundraiser a HUGE success!

On November 14, CCPA was proud to present its annual silent and live auction fundraiser to benefit CCPA and Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania.

This year's event included a "Legal Community Talent Showcase" with acts ranging from Monty Python skits to storytelling to musical acts! Attorneys, Paralegals, and a Judge all were on the stage and the crowd had a great time! The event was held at the Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center in the heart of the Borough of West Chester.

The event was a huge success, with proceeds benefiting CCPA and Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Food and refreshments compliments of local vendors, and over 30 silent and live auction items, including a one-week stay at a Villa in Tuscany, Italy, led CCPA to be able to present a check to LASP in the amount of $5,000.00! Kudos to the CCPA fundraising committee on their hard work.
