Welcome! I have been a member of DRI since 2007. A partner at a former law firm suggested that I join DRI to develop my practice. At the first conference I attended (Insurance Coverage and Claims Institute), he introduced me to friends he had made over the years and encouraged me to get involved. Little did I know six years later, I would be a DRI success story and that DRI would ask me and my new friend, Steve Crislip (a member since 1982), to help get the word out about the benefits of a DRI membership through a Membership Blog.
On a bi-weekly basis (every other Thursday), DRI and its Membership Committee will use the DRI Blog to provide you with information about the benefits of a DRI membership. We will provide answers to some of the most often asked questions and help you navigate the waters so that you can get what you want out of your DRI membership. We will provide you with useful information about the various substantive law committees (i.e., upcoming seminars, the structure of the committee and ideas for how to get involved). We will highlight some of the best features of a DRI Membership including DRI On-Line, DRI Today, For the Defense, In-House Defense Quarterly, the DRI Member Directory and DRI’s Expert Witness Database. We will provide you with instructions and ideas on how to update your DRI profile in the DRI Member Directory to make it work for you. We will also use the blog to shine a spotlight on some of the members who have helped make DRI the organization it is today and let them tell you their success stories and how DRI has helped them in their careers.
We don’t want the blog to just be about what DRI has to offer. We want (need) to hear from you. Ask us your questions. Let us know how DRI can improve your membership experience so that we can make DRI work for you.
With that said, DRI and the Membership Committee would like to officially welcome you to its Membership Blog. We look forwarding to sharing our knowledge and hearing from you!
