Frequently Asked Questions

We have had a groundswell of interest for the "New Rule 144: Everything You Need to Know ? And Do NOW" Conference. Below are some frequently asked questions:

  1. Can I receive the member discount on conference rates if someone else at my company/firm is a member of
  2. No. You can only receive the member discount if you are a member (remember, it has to be a 2008 member). However, you might be at a company/firm that has a Single Office Location or Firmwide license that enables you to get the special rate. 

    In other words, if you work in an office that is covered by either a Single Office Location or Firmwide license to ? you are eligible for the member discount. However, if someone in your office has a single membership and you don't ? you need to become a member yourself to receive the member discount.
