Robert Hoyden and Geoff Gese sent invitations to Process Servers around the State wanting to form an association that would support the industry in an effort to up-date the laws to protect our industry, to offer education to process servers across the State.
Thirty Years ago today Process Servers throughout the State came together and formed the Washington State Process Servers Association. WSPSA.
Thirty years later WSPSA continues to look out for the best interest of our profession, working with our membership and NAPPS. Congratulations to all the Founding Members of WSPSA and all the New Members who continue to lead us through the changes in our industry while keeping an eye out to the laws relating to Process Serving in the State.
Saturday 12/05/2015 the WSPSA Board met and under the direction of it’s new President, moving forward looking at technology and legislative possibilities, continuing to do what’s best for our industry. There were three finding members at that Board meeting, Gary Turpen, Greg and MaryLee Rustand, who are still working together for Process Servers throughout the State, and mentoring the next generation of Process Servers looking out to protect and promote WSPSA.
Please visit WSPSA on line www.wspsa.com for more information.
In closing.. I can’t thank everyone throughout our State, Members, Associate Members, out of State Members and NAPPS for 30 years of support.

It is vital we show our legislators how serious we are about this bill. Thanks to the efforts of Ted Trask, we have 4 out of 9 committee members supporting the bill. We need just one more to get it out of committee. Here is the list of Public Safety Committee Members. If you click on their name, it will take you to their email page to send them a message:
Rep. Lynda Wilson– 17th Leg. Dist.
If you are only going to contact one person, please make it the Chair, Rep. Goodman.

Hats off to Representative Dan Griffey, R Allyn. Through his efforts House Bill 1962, which would prohibit county auditors from displaying or releasing Social Security numbers collected when registering process servers, unanimously passed the state House of Representatives March 11.

The Washington State Process Servers Association is proud to announce their new website developed in conjunction with ServeNow.
This new site gives the association a much needed facelift that properly represents an association that works so hard for the profession and the interest of it’s members.
The goal of the new site is to drive membership, build awareness of legislative updates and promote education. Additionally, the website design is clean and easy to navigate, and it will increase the association’s online visibility and help market the WSPSA members to those that hire process servers in Washington.
The website highlights a variety of information, and new features including:
* An association member section and directory
* News / Blog
* Updates on Education / Certification
* Online membership application and renewal
