As an ongoing commitment to look for ways to freshen and strengthen the value of membership services and benefits, a task force examined LMA's membership structure in 2010. After extensive research and analysis of member input, the task force recommended - and the board approved - a simpler membership structure. The two-year phase-in of this new membership structure consists of:
If paying by check, please include your member ID and name and send payment to:
Legal Marketing Association
If paying by credit card, please send your payment to:
Legal Marketing Association
Online payments are processed immediately.
Renewals that are sent in to LMA Headquarters with either check or credit card must be processed manually and the process may take 7-10 business days.
Please contact LMA HQ to request a job bank post receipt.
Yes, there is a 30 day grace period for all members. If your membership is not renewed by the 30 day grace period date, you will lose all membership rights and access to the members' only portion of the LMA web site.
The “In-Transition” membership category applies only to current members who are currently unemployed and seeking new positions. The “In Transition” membership category is priced at $100 for six months, with the possibility of extending to a total of 12 months at no additional charge. It is only applicable for current members at renewal time, not new members, and chapter dues will still come at the current cost. Find out more and apply today.
LMA individual memberships may be transferred to another person if the individual member requests such a transfer via this Membership Transfer Form. The membership will be transferred to the requested individual and the departing member will be allowed to continue his/her membership for the remainder of the calendar year. A $75 transfer fee will be applied.
Members may express interest in serving on International or Chapter committees in three ways.
1. New Member - Membership application forms contain a section where you can indicate your desire to participate on a committee, either at the local chapter level or at the International level.
2. Renewing Member - On your membership renewal form. When renewing your membership, the online and hard copy dues renewal packages have a page titled Committee Interest. These packages are individually tailored to your chapter.
3. By contacting the relevant committee chair or board liaison. Members may obtain LMA International committee chair e-mail contact information by clicking on "Committees" under My LMA on the Members Only page.
New LMA members will start to receive the journal Strategies 45 days after their membership is activated. You will receive a copy of Strategies in your new member kit. Current and recent issues are available online. A multi-year archive may be reviewed in the members-only resource center.
If you have not received a copy of Strategies 60 days after your membership payment has been processed, contact LMA HQ.

The Legal Marketing Association (LMA) welcomes members' interest in convening a chapter. Chapters are vital in communicating the needs of the local legal community and instrumental in setting direction for our entire association.
The purpose of a Chapter is to meet, regionally, the professional needs of the in-house law firm marketing administrator. As LMA membership increases, regional affiliations provide a convenient way to maintain or increase contact with other members of the association, and a cost-effective way to provide educational programming.
The objectives of the Chapter should be to establish and maintain a regional organization to:
Chapters provide members with a cost-effective means to achieve the following goals:
If you are interested in forming a chapter in your region or city, contact LMA Headquarters at email@example.com
Membership dues include local chapter membership where applicable.
If your address falls within a chapter's region, you will automatically become a member of that chapter. Members outside of designated chapter areas are considered members-at-large.
LMA members may join more than one chapter. In such cases, the member must pay chapter dues for the second and subsequent chapters. Contact LMA at firstname.lastname@example.org for multiple chapter enrollment information.
Membership in LMA belongs to the individual member. If you change firms, your membership changes right with you. If you relocate to a new city, your membership will be transferred to the chapter in that city or closest to you. If there is no chapter in your new region, you will be considered a member-at-large. Contact LMA at email@example.com if you have moved chapters.
