KPA 32nd Annual Conference - A Message from the KPA Director of Professional Development


Dear KPA Members,

Hello! I’m Katie Flora, your Director of Professional Development for 2020-2021.

It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been a challenge for everyone - the KPA Conference Planning Committee included. However, thanks to your patience, we’ve been able to find new and exciting benefits for Kentucky paralegals to further their legal knowledge.

Firstly, the time has come for the Annual Conference, and I am delighted to officially announce the opening of registration for this year’s event. The conference will be conducted via Zoom, on November 14th.  Online registration is available on the KPA 32nd Annual Conference page under Upcoming Events.

Additionally, President Leslie Smith sent out an email recently wherein she discusses the KPA’s new relationship with InReach, a continuing education media platform that already has partnerships with not only the Kentucky Bar Association, but the Texas, Florida, and California Bar Associations as well, to just name a few.

InReach allows for members of these associations access to virtual CLEs from across the country, and, starting November 1st, the KPA’s members will also have this access. I’ll be sending out another email closer to November 1st providing additional information for InReach, so please keep an eye out for that. I am truly excited for this partnership and can’t wait for you all to use it and give me your feedback.


Lastly, thank you all again for your support through these unfathomable times. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any question, concern or comment that you may have about anything concerning the KPA. It’s an honor to serve the paralegals of this commonwealth and it’s an honor that your Board of Directors takes very seriously. Thank you.


Sincerely,

Katie Flora, CKP
