As a member, you'probably aware of the information we send out – this e-newsletter is one source and our journal, Integration Quarterly, another. One of these is access to epipeline - a source of information on upcoming government contracts. Contact Sean Campbell at epipeline, for information on accessing this information.

For example, if you're an Industry Partner member contact, you can nominate one owner for a free one-year individual membership. They'll receive all the benefits of DBIA membership – it's a good way to encourage an owner who already appreciates the benefits of design-build or educate one who's still undecided. And, for owners you'd like to encourage or educate or provide a networking opportunity, DBIA conferences offer some owners a scholarship to help them defray the costs of attending one of the conferences we offer every year.
