In This Issue

Richard Purcell

Positive comments about our internal newsletter continue to roll in. It seems like members look forward to it every 2nd month.

In this issue we again provide updated membership statistics. We are pleased to announce one new member, some follow up negotiations, and a due diligence trip.

Keeping our staffing and revenue statistics up to date is important since almost all firms that are considering membership in Integra International look at that chart to see how substantial we are. Please check your firm's staffing statistics on our web site to make sure that they are current. Just locate your firm from the link "firm locations" then click on the link to your firm and then click on "staffing"

Business referrals between members  are an important function of our association and again this month we present a good list of examples.

We are looking forward to our world wide conference in Melbourne this month. 

As always, your questions, comments, or suggestions are welcome and encouraged.


Richard Purcell, CA

Administrator for the Integra EMEIA Section


The locations of our 2012 conferences have been decided. AAA will meet in Seattle in May; EMEIA will meet in Copenhagen in June, and the world wide conference will see us get together in Madrid in October.

Business Referrals

Contact between members just continues to go on and on. Our usual list of referrals and assistance is a testament to that fact.
