Registration for the National Federation of Paralegal Association’s 2009 Annual convention is now live on the NFPA website.
The Oregon Paralegal Association invites you to Come to Oregon and Be a Paralegal Pioneer at the 2009 Annual Convention being held at the Red Lion Hotel on the River at Jantzen Beach in Portland, Oregon from October 29th through November 1st, 2009. (And for those of you who read Lucky Magazine, there's a great article about shopping in Portland.) Arrive early and take advantage of the excellent schedule of continuing education, including four concurrent CLE tracks: PACE, Paralegal 101, Corporate/Business and Litigation/Technology, being held on Thursday, October 29th. You will also have the opportunity to hear special keynote luncheon speaker Robert Dugoni, a Pacific Northwest attorney and author of legal/crime thrillers. You won’t want to miss the Thursday evening Trade Show Reception spotlighting exhibitors and celebrating NFPA’s 35th Anniversary. Many exhibitors and vendors will be showing off the latest in legal technology and services.
Attendees will also be having fun at our Friday night social event, hob-knobbing with members of AAfPE (who will be also convening in Portland for their annual meeting, and have been specially invited to join us), laughing at comedian Jan McInnis, aka “The Work Lady”, and having fun at our special Harvest Fair. On Saturday and Sunday, local association representatives will be gathering on the Floor of the Convention and helping shape the future of the paralegal profession. So make plans to get on the Oregon Trail and be a Paralegal Pioneer!
