The Executive Committee of IAR passed a motion in November of 2013 to classify the IAR Public Policy Meetings as an IAR business meeting for the purpose of individual member reimbursement eligibility, effective in 2015.
Hotel rooms will no longer be paid by IAR. Each member is responsible for making their own hotel reservation, as well as paying all charges. There is no registration fee for attending these meetings, however, if you plan to attend any of the meal functions - you must register on-line by January 9, 2015.

The November edition of the D.R. Legal News is the last one for the year, but it gives us a chance to go through some end-of-the-year matters that may be beneficial to address or at least be aware of, before the end of the year is upon us and the days and our time grow shortest. Perhaps a few of these year-end tips will be beneficial as you end 2014 and plan for a happy and prosperous new year.
