    Sponsor & Win

    KDC's membership numbers are strong and it continues to add free CLE programs and various other items to your membership, while dues have remained constant for the last seven years.  KDC offers one of the least expensive membership dues of all state legal defense organizations while providing so much more.  

    When KDC's current Executive Director came on board in 2004, after clearing out members that had not paid for a while, we had 240 members.  Our number now stands at 457; her goal was 450.  As you know, she is retiring in May 2022.  She would like 480 members (or more, even better) by the time of her departure.

    So here's the fun part for you:  No later than April 15, 2022, have your name entered for each new member you sponsor for a chance to win a $100 gift card, second chance a $50 gift card.

    But wait, there's more!  The member you sponsor also has their name entered in another drawing for a $100 gift card.

    The best parts:

    • We are going back to January 1, 2021 and adding those sponsors and new members to the drawing.
    • No membership dues or sponsor monies are being used to purchase the gift cards.  We are simply sharing our credit card reward points with the membership.

    To get you going, here is an Application for Membership and a list of reasons to be a member of KDC.
