As you are renewing your State Bar of Texas membership and dues, do not forget to check off the Asian Pacific Interest Section (APIS) for the State Bar of Texas! You can renew online via your MyBarPage or by a downloading section membership application and mailing or faxing it in. APIS is the umbrella organization representing Asian (Asian and South Asian) attorneys in Texas. APIS also hosts an Annual Conference every spring in Austin, Texas, which is a great opportunity to reconnect and make new connections. DAABA is participating in a membership drive, so if we register 15 new members we get special benefits year round and at the Annual Conference. Also, each new member that signs up is entered into a raffle to win a $50 Starbucks gift card. When you sign up, please shoot an e-mail to Ann Chao Sheu an firstname.lastname@example.org to count your registration towards the membership drive and enter the raffle. For more information about APIS, contact Ann Chao Sheu, APIS Chair at email@example.com or visit the website.
