NCAPPS First Conference Recap
NCAPPS President Ruth Reynolds on the Conference
On September 22nd process servers from North Carolina and neighboring states flocked to the Hilton in Durham for the first annual North Carolina Association of Professional Process Servers (NCAPPS) annual conference. President Ruth Reynolds was pleased with the turnout and feels that the association is ready to take the next step.
"We're probably going to be moving toward getting the increase in membership and then possibly start working on lobbying," she explained. "It's going to be a slow trip, but I think we need to get started." When it comes to legislation changes and lobbying, Reynolds stresses that it is a group effort, saying, "The more people we have involved the better off we'll be because we'll have a stronger voice when we get to Raleigh."
Reynolds believes that the major success of the conference was getting people to network and letting them know what plans the association has as a whole. Networking, educational seminars, safety training, giveaways, and other activities kept the conference educational and fun. "We had a lot of giveaways and we had a raffle for a Google Nexus 7 and we did a 50/50 raffle."
Reynolds, who started the very first process serving company in North Carolina, noted that the board has worked very hard to get the association to where it is today. "There were attendees from the mountains to the coast," she said. "We're very pleased with the turnout."
"If I wasn't a member of ServeNow I'm afraid I would be out of business. They've been my biggest partner in growing my business since I opened the first process serving firm in North Carolina, and I want to get involved in anything that they have to offer the industry. I intend to stay on ServeNow as long as I'm in the business."
