The 2017 CAPA conference tri-hosted by Fresno Paralegal Association, Kern County Paralegal Association and Sequoia Paralegal Association was a HUGE success!! Thanks to all of the attendees for giving up your day off, getting up early and attending the conference during our heat wave! The class speakers were top notch, Supervisor Amy Shuklian (and her opening joke) was amazing and United States Magistrate Judge Stanley A. Boone was a phenomenal speaker who kept us entertained for an entire hour!

My heartiest congratulations to conference chair Victoria Alonzo (FPA), Nancy Woods (SPA) and Erica Bjorstad (KCPA) for our successful conference. The hard work and dedication you and ALL of your helpers put forth made for a successful conference.

SPA is looking forward to our MCLE topics this fall: September – Local Cannabis Update, October – Ethics in Employment Cases, November – E-Discovery, Past, Present and Future. In December we will host the annual Chocolate Exchange!
