Bar Emailing Member Invoices
Bar Association dues and court fees invoices will be emailed to members during the first week of June and will be sent as attachments from email@example.com.
Association dues remain unchanged for fiscal year 2015, remaining level for the past five years. At Bar News presstime, the Supreme Court had not issued orders regarding the amounts for court fees, including charges for the Professional Conduct Committee, Lawyers Assistance Program, Public Protection Fund and NHMCLE filing fee. Those amounts will be reported in the next available e-Bulletin.
To help ensure your invoices are correct and arrive on time, please make necessary changes to your membership status and contact information immediately.
Address and status change forms are available online at www.nhbar.org (In For Members area, look for the appropriate form at “Membership Data Changes, Edits & Requests.”)
There will be separate invoices for mandatory fees established by the NH Supreme Court and Association dues, but they will be sent together in a single email, both payable 30 days from the invoice date.
Members without email or Internet access will receive invoices via US mail.
On Sept. 1, the NH Bar Association will assess a $50 delinquency fee on unpaid dues and/or Court fees. A warning of pending suspension also will be issued via the same delivery method as the invoices.
The annual trust account compliance IOLTA form will continue to be sent to members by mail this year, as the NH Supreme Court requires a hard-copy signature on the form.
If you have questions about the dues process, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the NHBA Finance Department at 603 715-3279.
