Portfolio and Portfolio Plus Options

MAXIMIZE MEMBERSHIP REWARDS

Now members have greater choice, value and up front savings. You can opt to maximize the value of your CBA membership by upgrading to Portfolio or Portfolio Plus. Purchasing these popular packages lets you access CBA professional development, Sections enrolment, rebate rewards and other CBA products, services and activities for much less than if purchased separately.

You must be a CBA member to experience the benefits of Portfolio or Portfolio Plus. Either option may be purchased at any time during your membership year, but will be effective between September 1 and August 31. Or you can simply renew your CBA membership as you did before, without choosing either option.

PORTFOLIO OPTION

The Portfolio option includes all the benefits enjoyed by members, plus:

  • A $250 education credit at a 20% discount (save $50.00) that can be applied to education products, services and activities from CBA National, CBA Branches and Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) for the designated membership year. These include such offers as: in-person and online professional development, Sections enrolment fees (where applicable), print and video material, legal directories, mid-winter meetings, conferences and more. All education credits must be used between September 1 and August 31 of the membership year for which they were purchased.
  • Section enrolment. Receive one complimentary materials-level membership in a Section of your choice.
  • A rebate off next year’s membership fee invoice, equivalent to 3% of your total spend from the previous year outside of membership fees and option purchased. CBA Rebate Rewards are calculated only on eligible products and services that are purchased beyond the $250.00 education credit.
  • Access to many additional CBA resources, including special publications and tools.

For prices, please visit the Alberta Branch offerings page. 

PORTFOLIO PLUS OPTION

The Portfolio Plus option includes all the benefits enjoyed by members, plus:

  • A $500 education credit at a 20% discount (save $100) that can be applied to education products, services and activities from CBA National, CBA Branches and Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) for the designated membership year. These include such offers as: in-person and online professional development, Sections enrolment fees, print and video material, legal directories, mid-winter meetings, conferences and more. All education credits must be used between September 1 and August 31 of the membership year for which they were purchased.
