ISBA Members:

Tweet about ISBA member benefits throughout the month of November and be entered to win a new iPad Mini.

We need your help to spread the word about the value of an ISBA membership!

As an ISBA member, we hope that you have taken advantage of the many benefits of membership and find them helpful to your practice. We continually strive to bring you benefits that will help you practice more affordably and effectively, like free online legal research through Fastcase and our newest benefit – Free CLE, enough to meet your MCLE requirement over a 2 year period.

As we reach out to non-members and ask them to join the ISBA, we'd like to let them hear from current ISBA members - in their own words – about their favorite ISBA member benefits.

Throughout the month of November (2012) we will be running an "ISBA Membership is Tweet!" Twitter campaign for our members. We're encouraging members to post a "Tweet" to the Twitter hash tag - #isbabenefits – for the chance to win 1 of 3 iPad Minis that we will be giving away*.  Tweets should answer one of the following questions:

  • What is your favorite ISBA member benefit and why?
  • How has an ISBA member benefit made a difference in your ability to practice more affordably and/or effectively?
  • How will the new ISBA Free CLE benefit help you and your practice?

3 Tweets – 3 Entries – 3 Prizes

Tweet up to 3 times and be entered 3 times in our drawing. We will randomly choose 3 "Tweets" as our winners and award the owner of each Tweet an iPad Mini*. Prize valued at $329. Each tweet must be a stand-alone tweet and not a repeat. One prize per winner.

Here is a list of some ISBA member benefits that you might like to consider tweeting about:

  • Free online legal research (Fastcase Premium Plan Library)
  • Practice technology resources (Discounts include Clio, CoreVault, LawPay, ESQ Sites, IOLTA calculators and accounting tools)

Drawing closes on Friday, November 30th, so don't delay!
