Our History

The New York State Professional Process Servers Association was established in 1997 at a meeting in Albany, New York.  Ninety individuals from around the state converged and debated for hours to reach an outline for a state association.

The group envisioned a united association that could affect a positive change on the legal support industry, the legislation that governs their businesses in the state of New York and the right of an individual to due process.

In May of 2002, NYSPPSA was rewarded with the title of Chartered State from the National Association of Professional Process Servers.  We continue to grow an active organization, meeting the challenges of our industry with assertive leadership, an evolving education program, an active legislation committee, and the hard work of our diverse members.
