Memberships

Chapter Chairs


Members in the metropolitan communities shown below meet regularly as Chapters. Members of the IPMA located in the geographic proximity of an established Chapter are automatically a member of the respective Chapter for no additional dues or fees. All Chapter members must be members of the IPMA in good standing.

IPMA Chapters provide an excellent opportunity for members to have direct peer-to-peer interaction at Chapter events. Individual Business Partners and local representatives of Corporate Business Partner members are invited to selected events at the option of the Chapter leadership with many Chapters conducting an annual service providers' event. Programs for Chapter meetings have included roundtable discussions on recruiting sources, the evaluation process, orientation and training, and other aspects of managing paralegals. Many Chapters invite outside speakers who have given presentations on subjects such as labor law issues, demographics of the future labor pool, networking and investigation techniques. Check the IPMA Calendar for listings of upcoming Chapter events.
