About the Joint Conference

The annual NFPA Joint Leadership/Regulation/Certification Ambassadors Conference is one of the most popular and most beneficial gatherings for paralegal leaders in their local association and their community. Attendees have the opportunity to share and network with professionals regarding association leadership, certification and regulation within the paralegal profession.

NFPA members may attend all three conferences for a nominal fee.  Non-members may attend the Regulation conference.

Social Scenes are set!

Friday night’s “no-host” dinner will be at 99 Restaurant & Pub across the street from Bunker Hill Community College at 29-31 Austin Street, Charlestown, MA 02129.  Please join other Joint Conference attendees for an enjoyable evening on Friday night at 99 Restaurant where there’s something for everyone at very reasonable prices.  Seating will begin at 6:00 for dinner, and there is a connecting pub at the restaurant for those who would like to participate in a cocktail hour beforehand.  Each party is responsible for their own meal/drink costs, but please RSVP when registering so we can get a headcount for planning purposes.
