Yes – this as a vital part of your membership to the BOKS International and, as such, we require that at least one partner of your firm attend at least one of our conferences each year. Beyond that, any further attendance is entirely up to you. However, it is worth noting that in our experience, the firms who put the most effort into conference attendance are the firms that benefit the most from their membership.

We have an executive team who act quickly to identify opportunities and continually work to grow the alliance. Our marketing team are available to help all members fully exploit membership, as a means of generating new business in their domestic markets with ongoing information and support offered to all member firms (24 hour response time via email). We are also responsible for the day to day administrative duties of the alliance, organisation of the conferences, sales and marketing and overall continual growth.

No – the only fee paid to BOKS International is your annual membership fee. We do not charge referral fees, nor do we charge a joining fee. The only additional recurring costs are those associated with attending our global and regional conferences.

• As a professionally managed alliance we are constantly looking to improve standards and quality within the alliance and are in a position to carefully select members that have the same ethos, while making sure existing members standards do not curtail
• Our executive and marketing team are available to assist you in any international matters
• With proven low-cost digital marketing techniques and data resources, we can help you to target and convert potential clients with overseas owners, subsidiaries and trading activities
• As a multidisciplinary alliance, we are able to offer a wide range of professional services all over the world so that you can give the best possible service to your international clients

Ultimately the amount of referred business you receive will be a result of your own activity within the alliance. We expect members to make a positive return on their investment each year, but this depends entirely upon your ability to use the alliance and its many resources to your own advantage.

The best results from membership to our alliance can be achieved by attending conferences, being involved in the BOKS International dedicated groups and forums; and by by making good practical use of the many opportunities to network and exchange best practices with other member firms.

The BOKS International board of directors is responsible for mid to long term strategies, policies and administration. The membership committee consists of the CEO and a team of professionals from each field to help maintain BOKS International’s stance.
