FAQs

Why should we join NAIP?

Having access to experienced peers is the cornerstone of NAIP membership. Of course, different jurisdictions have different laws and rules, but members consistently find that there is always another member program with experience on the issues they face.

What do we get for paying NAIP dues?

When an IOLTA program becomes a NAIP member, a door is opened to a rich array of benefits that support IOLTA leaders and staff in their work. These include professional and educational trainings, free monthly webinars, personal connections with people who understand the work you do, access to a members-only resource library, and more.

“NAIP membership has been invaluable to me as a new executive director of a small IOLTA program. Thanks to information I learned at in-person workshops and from ongoing conversations with incredibly helpful colleagues in other states, I have more than doubled our revenue from previous years. Unlike other membership organizations, NAIP has provided me with practical skills and knowledge that will have a lasting impact on our grant-making to legal services programs in Kentucky.”

We have a small IOLTA program with only one staff person. How can NAIP help me?

Being the only IOLTA staff member can be an isolating experience, especially when dealing with complicated IOLTA banking or civil legal aid policies. Joining NAIP will give you access to a network of colleagues to collaborate and consult with, which will make your work easier.

We are not sure if we can afford NAIP membership. Our funds are extremely limited for the upcoming year.

Members find tremendous value in NAIP membership, such as learning about strategies for working with financial institutions to increase IOLTA revenue, creating new revenue streams, and managing grants. For U.S. Based IOLTA programs, NAIP dues are based on the size of a program’s operating budget. For Canadian IOLTA programs, dues are a modest flat amount. If your IOLTA program is experiencing a temporary financial hardship, a discount may be available. Please click here to contact us for more information.
