TXAPPS Membership

TxAPPS is not an association for process servers alone.  With several levels of membership, we hope that anyone affiliated with the industry, who has a vested interest in the process server certification program, will find value from joining our organization.  

Attorneys, paralegals, and other legal professionals should regularly be concerned with insuring that process servers are learning not only the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, but also other laws process servers are encountered with in the field.  As an active community of process servers, we can help keep you updated with ever-changing in the rules and laws.  Also, process servers are in the courts all the time, so we know quickly when processes and procedures are changed at the local court level.  Access to our forums, news feeds, and news letters will give you a head above your colleagues and using TxAPPS members as your process servers insures you get professional servers on every case.

Our active members and provisional members are process servers who support the certification program, thus, we all want and need access to the highest level and most professional educators in the industry.  We encourage process server educators to join our cause as Partnering or Sustaining members.  The process server certification program and changes made by the JBCC surely affect you!  Our members look forward to supporting all of our Sustaining members by utilizing their products and services, and sharing our secrets to success with our fellow process servers.  From buying lots of new tires and oil changes, to insurance, if you have a product or service that can make a process server's life just a little bit easier, we're happy to include you in our membership!
