Time to renew dues for 2013!

It’s that time of year again to renew your membership for 2013!

We have invested a lot of time in our certification program this past year. More than 200 process servers will have completed the pre-certification training and taken the certification exam by the end of the year. However, much work needs to be done, including further legislative efforts and lobbying of the judiciary to overcome the sheriffs’ actions in attempting to block the legislative intent to allow all certified process servers to serve out of all courts in the State. These efforts can only be effective by maintaining a large and determined membership.

We are looking forward to our first annual Conference in March, 2013. In addition to guest speakers, we will offer Continuing Education credits contingent upon approval by the AOC. The Conference will culminate in a cocktail reception where we can meet and discuss common interests. We are also hoping to set up a meeting with key legislators.

So, if you want to insure that we overcome the obstacles established by the sheriffs to the certification program; if you want to continue to make gains on the legislative front; and, if you want to be a part of a strong association that can accomplish these goals, renew your membership now.

You can renew online and pay by credit card or print out the membership form found on our website at www.gappsprocess.com, and mail it along with  your payment to:
