DCBA Paralegal Committee – Membership Update
Hi everyone, just a brief update regarding the DCBA Paralegal Committee. For some time I have been asking the DCBA to reconsider its requirement that paralegal members must be FRPs. There are many rockstar paralegals who aren’t FRPs and it is such a shame that they have to be excluded. The great news is that they have recently changed the bylaws to allow NALA or NFPA certified/registered paralegals in addition to FRPs.
You can get an idea of the types of events hosted by the DCBA by visiting their calendar: https://www.dadecountybar.org/calendar/. (Keep in mind that non-members are welcome at most DCBA events, but the price is higher for non-members.)
You can also take a look at some of the many benefits of membership here: https://www.dadecountybar.org/benefits.htm
The DCBA membership cost for paralegals is $85 for 1 year or $200 for 3 years (save $55 and protect from price increases for 3 years!!), you can see the application here: https://www.dadecountybar.org/forms/paralegal.php (the membership requirement change is so new the application hasn’t been updated yet, but the change is in effect).
If you are interested in joining or would like to discuss the benefits, please feel free to contact me.
