May Membership Month: Grow Your Network, Build Your Connections

Grow Your Network, Build Your Connections at DRI

Did You Know?

DRI Membership pays for itself! A recent DRI survey of active members showed that nearly half of DRI members have given or received referrals and at least 45% of those referrals were worth more than $50k.

DRI is a global network of civil defense attorneys and in-house counsel you can turn to for professional support and referrals. It's truly one of the best investments you can make to help grow your network and build your connections.

That's why we’re asking DRI members to refer your peers to join the DRI community by May 31, 2024 -- and both the referring member and the new member will be rewarded!
