2021 Annual Convention

NFPA 2021 Convention
Nurture, Flourish, Participate, Aspire in Portland

Thank you for joining us for NFPA’s 2021 Convention!

After careful consideration, the NFPA Board of Directors decided to shift the format of the 2021 Annual Convention and Policy Meeting to a completely virtual event. We were looking forward to hosting an inaugural hybrid event, yet had to make the difficult decision to change the format to be fiscally responsible stewards of NFPA's financial resources while being attentive to the health and safety of all attendees.

The Annual Convention provides attendees an opportunity to attend continuing legal education sessions, network with paralegals from across the country, and set policy during the policy meeting. Participate in Convention and return to your local associations and workplaces with fresh ideas, knowledge and excitement. 


Check out what happened at Convention! The schedule-at-a-glance is available.
