Why Become a Member of TPSA?

Quick background of Association, the industry and why it is important to get involved

  • We are all one voice, working to improve our working conditions, industry and  safety.

TPSA is the oldest and largest state association in the country

  • Came together as 1 in 1999    North combined with South
  • TPSA has worked relentlessly to improve our industry, by influencing the perception of Process Server legislation.  Setting standards for Professionalism, Standards and Ethics

In 2005 TPSA created the certification program under the TX Supreme Court. 

  •  The TX Supreme Court came to TPSA and said “How do we educate them?”  So TPSA created the training program.   Prior to that you could only serve papers under Rule 103.  The judge in the county papers were issued from had to appoint individuals to serve those papers  EVERY paper!!
  • So Thank you TPSA for working for years to create a system where we are required to take classes and get certified with background checks.  TPSA worked real hard to bring education into the industry  It is VERY IMPORTANT!!!

We are sanctioned by National Association of Professional Process Servers (NAPPS)

  • TPSA works closely with them

NOTE: Process Servers are not representatives of the TX Supreme Court or Judicial Branch Certification Committee (JBCC)

  • JBCC certifies TX Process Servers and it is approved thru TX Supreme Court
