In This Issue

Inside Integra Editor Richard Purcell

Welcome to our fourth issue of our members only newsletter for 2016.

At our May and June conferences the business referral sessions revealed some superb quality Business Referrals among firms. You will find the referral of interaction and business among our members under the Business Referral section. Let us know about your contact with other Integra member firms so that we can report about it in the next issue of our newsletter. The information is used when we are recruiting new member firms - it shows the true value proposition of an Integra membership.

We are also happy to report several interesting happenings involving our members in  Member News.

In Other News we encourage you to register for our upcoming Cross Border Tax Workshop in September and the Worldwide Conference in October. Don't miss out on the great education and comradery.

We also enlist your help with increasing the number of individuals that receive our emails. Please let me know of others in your firm that you would like to add to our mailing list for Integra communications.

Your questions, comments, additions or suggestions are welcome and I would like to encourage you to send input for our next Inside Integra newsletter in October, 2016.

The Annual May and June Conferences were a Huge Success!

Our attendance at both the May Conference in Vancouver and the June Conference in Oslo increased from last year - a clear sign that we have upped the conference programming and social activities. Our thanks to host firms Gilmour Group and Partner Revisjon respectively. 

Business Referrals

Business referrals in June and July continue to impress. They have involved Japan, Mexico, Israel, United States, United Kingdom, Argentina, Panama, India, Austria, and Cyprus.

If you would like to report any referrals or assistance, please send an e-mail to one of us and we will gladly report on your behalf. It is your chance to publicly thank your colleagues.

Member Database and International Directory

The new and improved International Directory has now been delivered to all members. Please review the details we have for your firm.  The directory is intricately linked to our web site so updating the details of each firm in the printed directory will occur concurrently with updates to our website. 

We previously asked each member firm to ensure that all professional staff are included in our database so that Integra can directly send newsletters and conference information to them. We want to thank the many firms that submitted the information. However, there still remains a gap between the number of professional staff according to our membership statistics (3,272) and our mailing database (771). 

We realize that not all staff in your firm speak English but by them receiving information directly from Integra, they will feel part of the organization. They are the future leaders of your firm and it will benefit the firm in the long run.

If you are the main contact person for your firm, please respond with the names and e-mail addresses of all your professional staff. This can only help your firm experience the power of your Integra membership by engaging your entire staff in what's happening at Integra.

Member Statistics Survey

On July 22, each firm contact person was sent the annual statistics survey. If you are your firm's primary contact, please complete the survey by August 31. The information provided will allow us to submit accurate information to the various services that monitor networks and associations. It will also be used to calculate 2017 membership dues.
