NFPA Rolls Out New Website - 6/1/12
The new NFPA website is a complete redesign. Here are some highlights:
Moreover, the new site’s technological underpinnings have a greater capacity for expansion. We will be able to add new features and enhance existing ones using HQ resources, not expensive web design firms. We feel that what we are unveiling is great in its own right, but more than that, we see it as a foundation to build upon for even more member value in the future.
Members: If you’re having difficulty signing in please call HQ at 425-967-0045 to verify we have the correct email address for you. Individuals should also set their preferences regarding the broadcast NFPA e-mails, whether or not to receive a paper or online copy of the National Paralegal Reporter, and/or how their entry in the Leadership Directory, if they have one, should appear. Associations should also continually update the Leadership Directory as to Board members so that the Leadership Directory is - at all times - up-to-date.
Scholarship and Award Nominations - all nominations for NFPA awards including Individual and Association Pro Bono, Paralegal of the Year, Outstanding Local Leader and Robie, as well as applications for the two Thomson-Reuter's Scholarships must be postmarked on or before July 1, 2012.
