Organizational memberships are available for any number of members and the seats are transferable within organizations. We have 5-seat and 10-seat options below. If your organization needs a different number of seats, contact our office and we can provide you with an organizational membership having the number of seats that you need. Organizational membership is auto-renewed. Individuals included in the organizational membership get the same MIPLA membership benefits as individual members, above.
