BE AN IABC VIP

 

Incentives

There are a number of incentives being offered this month.

New Members:
New and lapsed members who join or reinstate will receive a 10% discount on their International IABC dues and have their US $40 application fee waived. This dues discount is a one-time offer and only available for March 2017 Membership Month. They will also be entered in a drawing for a VIP prize package to IABC World Conference.

Renewing Members:
Current members who renew in March will receive a 10% discount on International IABC dues. They will also be entered into the drawing for the VIP prize package for IABC World Conference.

Current Members Referring New Members:
Members who refer new members to join IABC will be entered to win a $500 visa gift card for every new or lapsed/reinstated member who lists them as a referral source.  Members may not list themselves as their referral source.  Members who refer peers will be recognized on the IABC website as a Community Champion for the months of April and May. We will also provide special recognition at the IABC 2017 World Conference as an IABC Champion.  A new pop-up banner will be purchased and displayed near the membership booth.  In addition, we will potentially recognize this group during AGM on a slide during Chair Remarks reflecting on the past year or on a rotating slide.

Chapters:
In order to ensure that we can recognize the hard work and results of chapters of all sizes, we will offer three chapter prizes for membership growth.  We will award one complimentary 2018 Leadership Institute Registration for the incoming Chairs of the small, medium, and large chapters with the greatest percentage net growth during the month of March.
