Conference attendees who are participating in their first or second annual event are sometimes overwhelmed and confused by the amount of information available. Long term NARPA members tend to use verbal shorthand in references to cases, books or agencies. This workshop is an informal discussion of the history, mission and current status of the organization. Questions and comments are encouraged. Bill Stewart and Tom Behrendt are former NARPA Presidents and Kwamena Blankson is the current President.
