Additionally, IPEBLA recently introduced a new Associate Membership category for individuals who by virtue of their roles in the pension, benefits and/or executive compensation sector(s) wish to maintain or obtain IPEBLA membership for non-commercial purposes and who cannot meet the requirements of full membership (i.e. being a legal professional with at least 50% work in the field of pensions). We invite you to share this Membership category with your networks in order to help grow IPEBLA’s reach and provide new opportunities for IPEBLA members to connect with non-lawyers working in the pension and/or benefit and/or executive compensation industry.
