Guest Speakers Announced for NCAPPS 2015 Annual Meeting

The 4th annual NCAPPS conference is Saturday, October 17th, 2015 in Durham, North Carolina.  We are excited to bring you two wonderful speakers, both addressing a topic that all process servers encounter in their jobs daily, “Understanding Body Language”.   Remaining safe at all times is the highest priority of any serve or attempt of service. Process servers have to approach all kinds of properties and deal with many types of individuals and dogs while serving documents.  Our guest speakers will focus on this interaction and how to better understand body language with both people and dogs.   For more information and the location of our annual event, please click here.
