Do you know about all your member benefits?
DBIA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As a member, you're probably aware of the information we send out – this e-newsletter is one source and our journal, Integration Quarterly, another. One of these is access to epipeline – a source of information on upcoming government contracts. Contact Sean Campbell at epipeline, sean.campbell@epipeline.com for information on accessing this information.

For example, if you're an Industry Partner member contact, you can nominate one owner for a free one-year individual membership. They'll receive all the benefits of DBIA membership – it's a good way to encourage an owner who already appreciates the benefits of design-build or educate one who's still undecided. And, for owners you'd like to encourage or educate or provide a networking opportunity, DBIA conferences offer some owners a scholarship to help them defray the costs of attending one of the conferences we offer every year.
