Dear [[first_name]] [[last_name]] Esq.,

Greetings from the IPBA!

It's hard to believe that there is only one month left in the year 2015! At this time of year, seasonal changes become prominent, with the snow starting to fly in some parts of the world and the temperature just heating up in others. If you're like us at the IPBA, we imagine that you will be spending the next few weeks furiously finishing up work, tying up loose ends, and getting things in order so that you can enjoy the holiday season without worry, and then start the new year fresh and without burden. We wish you a productive month ahead!

IPBA Membership News

The Secretariat is now accepting dues payment for the 2016 membership year. We have mailed out paper invoices to those who need to pay dues for 2016, as well as begun our e-mail renewal reminder campaign. Officially, membership dues should be paid by December 31st, but we do have a "grace" period until March 31st for those whose firms do not release funds until the calendar year.

We accept new members throughout the year, too! It's a great time to recommend the IPBA to your colleagues and business associates, as they can enjoy membership from now until the end of December 2016, getting one extra month of membership.
