For more details, check out our member benefits and pass them along to your friends and colleagues. We want to see our membership base grow by 25% over the next 2 years; due to the value we provide to current and new members. Also, you do not have to be a licensed California lawyer to be a member. Lawyers anywhere in the world, CPAs, enrolled agents and any other tax professional (anywhere in the world – including Yucatán) can be an “associate member” and access these services and the professional tax network of the Tax Section. Thank you.
