Member Appreciation Week Prizes
Get Involved and Win Fabulous Prizes like a Leather Briefcase or a New iPad!
During Member Appreciation Week, we will give a prize to a member drawn at random daily from our database. In addition, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for your chance to win in the following categories:
  • Stories—Every day, we will ask members via Facbook and Twitter to talk about specific ways they are putting their DBA membership benefits to work for them. You may use a video, a photo, or simply text. Winners will be chosen each day and prizes given.
  • Trivia—Daily, we will ask members via Facebook and Twitter a different historical legal trivia question. The first DBA member to answer correctly will win a prize!
  • Thanks—Member Appreciation Week wouldn’t be the same without a whole lot of “thank-yous” going around. Join us in sharing your appreciation of other members or anything/anyone else using #DBAthanks. We will publish your comments in the July/August issue of The Docket.
  • Get Involved—During Member Appreciation Week, sign up for a DBA Committee, attend a program or event, or submit your story and get entered to win the Grand Prize!
