The Benefits of Being a CalsPro Member

As a registered process server in California, I’m proud to be a part of CalsPro – the California Association of Legal Support Professionals. CalsPro is a trade association that exists to protect our industry by promoting valuable legislation and opposing the more problematic bills, that seem to pop up year after year, more often than not, unintentionally. 

Being a CalsPro member comes with many benefits, including access to the California legislative process through our lobbyist, education, community, and increased income potential. Here’s a closer look at each of these benefits: 

Benefit 1: Legislation

As a CalsPro member, you’ll have access to valuable legislative information that can help you stay up-to-date on the latest industry news and developments. This is important because it means you’ll be able to make informed decisions about your business – and that can translate into more money in your pocket. Additionally, being aware of industry changes can help you stay ahead of the competition. 

Since 1970 (54+ Years) process servers, legal photocopiers and legal support professionals have been a special interest group in California. Your membership fee grants you direct access to our legislative committee and our lobbyist. 

Can your business afford $60k+ a year to fight legislation by itself? 

There were 2 major bills recently, that came out of nowhere. Once again fighting off an eService mandate, this time for Business Records Subpoenas. Unintentionally we were one bill away from losing the ability to serve all writs (Bank Levy, Earnings Withholding Orders and Attachments, etc.), because of a poorly written bill. Over the past 2 years alone, CalsPro has worked on no less than 30 bills. 

Any member can suggest changes to existing laws, the need for new laws to remedy current problems you are experiencing in the field and to help steer the future of the industry.

Additionally, being well-educated can help you command higher fees for your services.

Benefit 3: Community

We understand that for many of us, especially solo and small businesses, it can be a very lonely experience, at least it has been for me in the past. 

When you become a CalsPro member, you’ll instantly become part of a community of like-minded entrepreneurs. This is valuable because it gives you access to a network of professionals who can offer support, advice, and camaraderie. 

Additionally, being part of the CalsPro community can help increase your visibility and credibility in the eyes of potential clients.

Every year CalsPro has an annual conference that rotates between Northern and Southern California. It’s a place where you get the opportunity to meet face to face with people from all over California and the country sometimes. 

Networking opportunities happen all the time at conference, you could strike up a conversation and discover that they are looking for someone to cover your area with 10 or 1,000 services a month. 

Or you could be the one who just found someone to cover your 100 jobs a month in that area that has been your problem child all year long.

Benefit 4: Increased Income Potential

Finally, as a CalsPro member, you’ll have the opportunity to increase your income potential. 

This is because CalsPro members will normally offer members discounts on services that will allow you to increase your coverage area, dispatching work all over the state, adding more revenue to your pocket from your attorney and pro-per clients. 

In addition to sending work out, you can receive work from other CalsPro members who have a need in your area. I know of $400k+ companies that 70% of their income comes from other CalsPro members. 

I myself made $14,783.56 last year alone from CalsPro customers and have paid out about $20,090.00 to fellow members and I’m a very small company. This obviously fluctuates, year to year depending on my current client’s makeup and needs.

The lifetime value of my membership in the California Association of Legal Support Professionals is well over $500,000 in CalsPro affiliate work received and over $4,172,000 if you factor in the educational and legislative benefits, I’ve enjoyed because of CalsPro, throughout my 26+ years as a California Registered Process Server. 

All for the price of 1 to 10 affiliate services a month!

Additionally, being a member of CalsPro can help you attract higher-paying clients due to the increased visibility and credibility that comes with membership. You will also discover you have more money to reinvest in your business.
