National Process Servers Association Unveils National Education Campaign

NAPPS Plays Critical Role in Protecting Citizens' Rights, Access to Legal System

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - January 27, 2011) - Process servers have never been busier than during these challenging economic times dealing with a rising number of collections, foreclosures and other legal matters.

With this increased activity as a backdrop, the National Association of Professional Process Servers (NAPPS) is embarking on a national education campaign to promote process servers and highlight their role as an independent third party that delivers legal notices to parties and witnesses in legal actions, ensuring that individuals have the ability to exercise their right to due process and have access to the legal system.

"Very few people really know what we do, and the few who do often are misinformed and have an inaccurate perception of what a professional process server actually does," said NAPPS Board President Jeff Bannister. "NAPPS feels very strongly that our role is critical in a functioning legal system. We ensure people's right to access and being heard."

NAPPS has over 2,000 members representing all 50 states, seven Canadian provinces and several countries. It is the first resource for credible industry information, and members follow a strict code of ethics and professional conduct.

"NAPPS members are committed to being accountable, reliable and valuable to our clients, the courts and the parties and witnesses we serve," said NAPPS Administrator Gary Crowe. "The legal system has to work for those we serve -- it is their opportunity to be heard. We take this responsibility seriously."

As part of the campaign, NAPPS will actively engage key members of the legal and business reporting media to provide industry updates, access to key members and opportunities to better understand the important role NAPPS members play.

NAPPS is a worldwide organization founded on the principles of professionalism and high ethical standards.
