May Membership Month: Who's Your One?

Who's your one? Good Things Must Be Shared. Refer someone to join DRI and get rewarded.

DRI Announces May Membership Drawing Winners

Thank you to all DRI members and leadership who participated in our third May Membership Campaign; it was a huge success! We would like to congratulate the following prize winners, who were selected randomly from all of our recruiters.

May Membership Drawing Winners

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 in your career … and it's too good not to be shared!

That's why we’re asking DRI members "Who's Your One?" during the month of May. We are encouraging members to refer one colleague/peer to join the DRI community by May 31 -- and both the referring member and the new member will be rewarded!*

*To be rewarded, new DRI members must join via the membership application or online and use referral code IM-2023MAY-CLE. New members must indicate the referring DRI member's name in the application.
