Welcome to the Jurisdictional page for the United States.

As the Jurisdictional Council Member for the United States, it’s my job to encourage all of you to get and stay involved in IPBA activities.
Members from the United States play an important role in the IPBA and serve on many committees.
We welcome you to join and to get involved. I am proud to have been a member of the IPBA for many years, and I consider the IPBA vital to my practice of international trade law in Washington, DC (and a lot of fun).

We can pair new members with long term members who can provide ideas on getting involved and seizing the benefits of IPBA membership.
The key step is to join a Committee and get involved in the Committee activities, which include everything from preparing panels for the Annual Conferences (next up, Singapore in 2019) or the mid-year meeting (next up, Thailand),
or any number of regional conferences (like our recent event in Los Angeles).  

If you have any questions about how to get more involved in the IPBA and how to make the most of your membership, please let me know. 
We need you to be actively engaged. We need each of you to recruit a new member from the United States, to help with regional events (send me any ideas for topics, areas of your expertise, what you would like to speak on, which committees are of interest).
