IPMA News & Announcements
For 37 years the organization has been and continues to be the leading source for education and networking for managers of paralegals, litigation support and docketing personnel.
While there are many different law-related associations to choose from, the IPMA is unique in that we focus on the needs of managers of non-attorney fee earners. Our programming, website, chapters
, and affinity groups
all work towards meeting this need. We consistently add new content and educational opportunities to address the widening number of responsibilities given to our members.
If you are interested in what the IPMA has to offer, you are welcome to attend three events such as chapter meetings or affinity group calls before joining. Please contact headquarters
for more information on options that best fit your needs. Other offerings, such as our Managerial Skills Seminar
, Master Class, webinars
, and Annual Conference
, are open to anyone interested in practice support management. If you would like to speak to a current member of the association, please feel free to reach out to our headquarters staff who will connect you with someone who can tell you how the IPMA has impacted their management experience.
I hope that you will consider the IPMA as a partner in your professional development. We have members across North America who can become your
professional network, and a few may end up as life-long friends.
