Texas Alliance of Paralegal Associations ("TAPA")

TAPA is an alliance of Texas paralegal associations, formed in 1982 when representatives of local paralegal associations in Texas met to exchange ideas and establish a network for communication and support.  The Alliance now includes 25 participating associations which work together to further the profession by monitoring and participating in the paralegal profession, maintaining a statewide communications network among paralegal associations and other members of the legal community, and encouraging and enhancing continued education and professional growth of paralegals in Texas.

TAPA now meets once a year in different cities throughout Texas, with representatives of each association giving verbal and written presentations on the individual member associations' progress and professional growth.
