Delaware County Paralegal Association
Membership
After its founding in the fall of 2011, the DCPA currently boasts an active membership  across the county. Members are provided a forum for the exchange of knowledge,  information, viewpoints, ideas, educational opportunities and job openings.

As a part of the DCPA, members become affiliated with a statewide network of paralegals through the Keystone Alliance of Paralegal Associations.  In addition, we sponsor continuing legal education courses for education and professional growth.
