At this time, since the University Club is not able to accommodate our in-person Monthly Membership Luncheons due to the COVID-19 constraints for our health and safety, we are offering to both TBPA Members and Guests the opportunity for 1 CLE Unit Credit via Recorded Video Presentation. Once the University Club is open to full capacity, we will continue to offer a Video Only RSVP Registration option at a special rate to both Members and Guests, however, limiting the number to 2 registrations in any given year for Guests since this will be a new TBPA Membership Benefit. We encourage you to join TBPA and enjoy the many benefits membership offers. Please keep healthy and we hope to see you soon!

TBPA is no longer accepting reservations via email or mail. 

TBPA reserves the right to change/substitute speakers, presentations, or topics as necessary due to unexpected circumstances. Cancellations for paid-in-full registrations prior to the RSVP Deadline will be refunded.  After the RSVP Deadline, no refunds will be provided and payment in full will be due since the process of providing secured video link with cle certificate will have commenced.

Special "Thank You" to this month's TBPA CLE Sponsors:

Milestone Reporting Company began its journey over 30 years ago when The Reporting Company first opened its doors to the court reporting community in 1979. Pioneering a new standard of uncompromising personal service, The Reporting Company's popularity became widespread through Central Florida, deeming them "the company with a personal touch." Unparalleled quality, personalized service, and a genuine understanding of the clients' needs made The Reporting Company a leader in the industry. In 2005, Milestone Reporting, Inc. was established with a vision to become the industry leader in technology, innovation, and progressive thinking. Both companies became pillars in the industry, upholding the same high standards and providing the same quality of service to their clientele. Realizing the power that can be created if both companies worked together rather than against each other, they knew it was time to do something different. In 2011, Milestone Reporting Company was created with the combined talents and ingenuity of both companies.

Milestone Reporting Company continues to seek out cost-effective measures to best service our clients, while providing them with the tools they need to properly litigate their cases. Being leaders in technology, Milestone Reporting Company stays ahead of the technological curve while continuing to provide the personalized service you and your clients deserve.
