An Update for Our Members on Coronavirus

To our valued CDPA members,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Capital District Paralegal Association, we want to take a moment to acknowledge this difficult time. The effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has touched every home and workplace in some way. We extend our best wishes to navigate through with safety as the top priority. As each day brings new information, we will continue to monitor to make decisions on hosting our future events.  Please know that you, our members, are valuable to us. Your health, and the health of your family, friends and co-workers, is what matters most.

Please visit our Facebook page and our website https://www.capitaldistrictparalegals.org/ for updates on future events.

Thank you for your continued support of CDPA.  We are here for you too.

All the best,
