Events - Joint Conference

NFPA’s 2021 Joint Conference is hosted by the Minnesota Paralegal Association (MPA). The annual NFPA Joint Leadership, Certification, and Regulation 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. All three conferences are open to NFPA Members.


NFPA negotiated a non-blocked discount rate at the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Mall of America (3800 American Blvd E, Bloomington, Minnesota 55425, USA) for attendees. More information to come.
