How do we become a DC approved depository?

The DC Board on Professional Responsibility handles the approval process.  As part of that process, the DC Bar Foundation will need to review and approve the rate(s) your bank proposed to offer for DC IOLTA accounts.  Your institution will also need to complete an undertaking (agreement) with the DC Board on Professional Responsibility.  A copy of all the forms you need is available here.
