Attendance in IBP Conventions No Longer Mandatory For Retaining Membership in Good Standing

Posted by Oli Reyes on March 29, 2010

Last 2008, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines passed IBP Resolution No. XVIII-2008-188 which mandated attendance in the immediate preceding IBP Regional or National Convention in order to obtain a Certificate of Good Standing from the IBP. This new requirement has led to questions even until now whether one has to attend these conventions. However, last 17 April 2009, the IBP Board of Governors issued a new resolution revoking the 2008 Resolution. Therefore, one need not have attended the previous IBP conventions in order to be certified as a member in good standing.
