As we begin 2018, I am thrilled to welcome new board members Debbie Norys, Kym Deathriage, and Monica Rast as well as returning board members Kari Martin-Higgins and Catherine Hughes.
As we move forward, it is SPA’s intent to continue the trend of providing quality CLE presentations by dynamic and knowledgeable speakers.  In the past, SPA has relied on other entities to supply the CLE credit.  Over the past six months, SPA has been working diligently to become self-sustaining and provide our own MCLE credit.  SPA has recently applied for the MCLE Multiple Activity Provider with the California State Bar.  Once approved, this will allow SPA to continue the path of being self-sustaining and bring you quality CLE.
SPA is proud to support the upcoming California Certified Paralegal Exam (CCP).  The exam will be held on February 9, 2018 in Sacramento.  For more information email to express your interest.
SPA would like to congratulate the 2018 CAPA officers: President – Victoria Falcon-Alonzo; Vice President, Policy –  Julie A Schwartz; Vice President, Administration – Nancy A Logue, ACP; Secretary – Andrea J. Hendricksonand Treasurer –  Kari Martin-Higgins, ACP, CAS.
I look forward 2018 and to see how this association will grow and change for the better!


Nicol Dennewitz, President
