President’s Message 

I am honored to accept the position of President of the Central Illinois Paralegal Association.  I am excited to have opportunity to be part of such a great organization made up of wonderful paralegals.  I look forward to the coming year.

On behalf of the Central Illinois Paralegal Association it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.  Please take a moment to explore all that we have to offer.  Our activities include monthly meetings, continuing legal education, a host of committees that would welcome your involvement and a yearly educational seminar.

CIPA is your organization and we are only as strong as the involvement of our members.  Therefore, my challenge to you is to get involved.  As I indicated above, we have many committees:

  • Job bank;
  • Pro bono;
  • Website;
  • Seminar;
  • Newsletter;
  • Membership; and
  • Scholarship.

Paralegal associations are the voice of paralegals.  Let your voice be heard.  I hope you accept my challenge.

Thank you for visiting CIPA’s website.  Please come back often to stay informed of our latest news and upcoming events.   Please contact any one of our board members with any questions.

Crystal Thomas, ACP
