I missed the July 31st deadline to renew. How do I maintain my membership in the Paralegal Division?

According the Standing Rules of the Paralegal Division, you must re-apply for membership using the current membership application. The Standing Rules of the Paralegal Division provision states:


Amended April 1986, April 1993, February 2000, February 2004, October 2004, June 2005, November 2006, March 2007, February 2008, June 2008, November 2008, February 2013

2.   Any member filing a renewal application after July 1 of the calendar year in which such membership expired shall pay a $25 late fee, in addition to the membership fee, at the time of application. Any member who has not filed a renewal application and paid the appropriate fee on or before July 31 of the calendar year in which such membership expired shall be deleted from the membership rolls of the Division. Reinstatement will require the submission of a new application in accordance with the requirements then in effect, except at the discretion of the Board. Any applicant who has been an Active or Associate member within the previous twelve (12) months, and is re-applying for membership must show proof of completion of six (6) CLE hours in order to be eligible for Active or Associate membership status.

However, if you feel your case is unique, you have the option to appeal to the Board of Directors. A list of directors can be found via the CONTACT menu above.
