Founded in 1974, NFPA was the first national paralegal association. It is an issues-driven, policy-oriented professional association directed by its membership. The NFPA is federation comprised of over 50 state and local member associations representing over 9,000 individual members.
When PANV was formed in 2007 and joined The NFPA that same year, all PANV members automatically became members of NFPA. As a member association of The NFPA, PANV benefits from the strength of being connected to an organization with significant resources as well as the opportunity to exchange ideas, partner, and collaborate with paralegals across the country. Each NFPA member association, regardless of its size, has one direct vote at the national level.
