Kick It Forward Program Pays 12 Members’ Dues in 2019
December 20, 2019
The Kick It Forward Program paid 12 members’ dues for 2019 totaling $3,300.
The program was born out of a desire to help fellow lawyers with financial difficulties. With the many economic challenges lawyers face today, it can be a struggle to build up and maintain a legal practice. That’s why the Young Lawyers Division launched Kick It Forward in 2015, with a mission to assist lawyers of all ages in need by paying their OBA dues while they get on their feet.
The program is funded by donations made through an election on your dues statement. By completing the Kick It Forward line, lawyers agree to pay $20, or the amount of their choice, to the program in addition to annual dues.
