About NFPA - Become a Member

Welcome to NFPA!

Whether you are a new or returning member, we're delighted to have you with us. There are two ways to join our organization - either through one of our dozens of affiliated local paralegal associations nationwide, or directly as an Individual or Organizational member.


Join Your Local Member Association

Did you know that over 90% of NFPA's members are also part of a local association?

When you join a local paralegal association that is a part of NFPA,
you automatically become an NFPA member at no extra cost!
