The past year saw the introduction of a pilot program to test the viability of bundling CLE with section membership. The pilot program, which was tested with four IndyBar sections, proved overwhelmingly successful, attracting new members and boosting attendance levels at CLE programs.
For 2014, the Plus CLE option has been extended to all sections and divisions. Choosing the Plus CLE membership option allows members to join a section or division and attend all of that group’s one hour brownbag CLE programs at no additional cost throughout 2014. Each section or division will offer a minimum of four programs, providing a savings of at least $80 per year.
Now, an additional benefit has been added for “Plus CLE” section or division members. In addition to attending all of a section or division’s live one-hour brownbag CLE programs throughout the year at no charge, Plus CLE members can also view any of that group’s programs in the IndyBar Online CLE catalog for free. While CLE credit will not be available for the free registration option, this benefit provides a valuable opportunity to access education and information crucial to the practice in an convenient and cost-effective way. Need the credit? Simply select the “Member” registration option to register and pay for the course and receive CLE credit upon completion.
The online CLE catalog is viewable at indybar.org/onlinecle. To search based on a topic area, simply select that topic from the drop-down menu. The registration page for each course will note which section or division sponsored the event in the “Sponsor” field.•
